History happens while we are busy living our lives

Snowmegedon

Snowmageddon 2014 is hopefully coming to a close. If you are fortunate enough to have some quiet time (or not so quiet), jot down some memories from the last several days. The record low temperatures combined with the record snow falls has created weather not seen since the famous Blizzard of 1978. When younger family members ask you, “Where were you during the Snowmageddon of 2014?” It would be nice to say something more than, “I ate a lot of cookies.” LOL

My family and I survived a power outage, that forced us out into the frozen tundra to the safety of a hotel for the night. A few days later we had even more excitement in the form of a broken water pipe.  It’s been quite a week, one that we won’t soon forget. And to make sure of it, I’ve taken pictures to document what we’ve survived.  My Mom has pictures of me and my baby sister making snow angels during the Blizzard of 1978. We were both dressed in our matching parkas with the faux fur trimmed hood!   Jot down some memories folks! And take some pictures. Later, you’ll be happy you did!

I am a part-time blogger and a full time observer of people and culture. I have been researching my family history for over 20 years. I previously served as President and President-Elect (Vice-President) of one the local genealogy groups. I’ve conducted genealogy lectures and training's for corporate organizations and family history centers. I have researched my maternal and paternal sides going back 7 generations. With all that work, there is still more to discover. My genealogical goals for 2014 are to submit to libraries and history centers, family history books covering several of my family lines. I am available for consultation.
