Do you remember what winters used to look like? How from towards the end of November we were likely to get a blizzard that would bury the whole town under a blanket of snow? Those good old days are gone. With a combination of climate change and just times moving on, those types of winters have become part of a dream for certain parts of the country. If anything, some are happy that they do not have to deal with the huge amounts of snow anymore!

But we say that as happy as we are that we live in the 21st century, there was something special about the winters in the 20th century. And we wonder if our grandchildren will ever get to see as much snow as we did back in our day. Besides that, it seems like people have forgotten how to make the most of the snow we get until it melts. Let’s take a look at how people were enjoying and celebrating the snow, no matter how much it inconvenienced them.

Maybe it gives us some inspiration so that the next time it happens we are ready to bundle up and have some fun!

  1. I live in Srilanka. We never go through winter as in European countries. However, while I am writing this note Srilanka is unusually Misty and Cold from early morning (8/12/22). As per the information received the mist is due to accumulated dust in the Indian atmosphere. Citizens have been advised to wear a good mask before they leave their homes to avoid catching a cold. This reminds me of the Covid19 days. How long will this last be anybody’s guess.

  2. The good old days?? You no longer have snow?? Well, that’s what happens when you move from Massachusetts to Florida! I don’t know what kind of bs you are peddling, but in my part of the country, we still have snow, like always in the winter. There’s nothing “good old days” about it. Every winter, it snows, as usual.

  3. Back in 2007 or 2008 we had a blizzard in Chicago, and it took me over 4 hours to go roughly 35 miles from workplace St Charles to home in Oswego. Accumulation was over 3 feet, and it took me most of the following day to dig out my driveway. Not quite as bad as the photos you showed, but then I had no National Guard to help me shouvel, either!

  4. They are AWESOM PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It really does show what Snow look like then.
    And when the Snow first fell, It was as White coud be, and it look STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I remember The Blizzard of 1978!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
