  •  I Had a Paper Route in 78 (4+ / 0-)

    The two worst winters I can remember were the two winters, 77 and 78, I had a paper route.  On the day of the blizzard they canceled delivery and the day after, but I was out trudging through those drifts for months.  In 77 we did not get the snow but the temperatures were crippling.  I remember actually having ice form on my cheeks that year.  In 78 what made the blizzard especially bad was all the snow we got afterwards.  There were drifts 5 and 6 feet deep.  Sometimes the wind would kick up and move all the snow around and that was enough to close the roads and shut down the schools.

    My friend and I rolled up a huge snowball and put it on the north side of his house.  We were throwing snowballs at each other until June.

    I'm just here for the Mojo!
