1947-8 or 1948-9 Winter Photo from driveway on LaFayette Rd. LaFayette, NY

I’m not dreaming of a white Christmas or anything, but this lack of snow at this time of year in my part of the world is quite unusual. And while I don’t want a blizzard like Denver had, I would like a little snow at Christmas. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas without snow. So here’s another short story from my Dad showing my Dad as a young man and some of the huge piles of snow we used to get in the place where I grew up.

LaFayette, NY

The driveway had drifted to a depth of 3.5 feet +/-. This is the result of some “new snow” together with an intense wind. Shoveling by hand was effective, but labor intensive. The “shoveler” pictured here (my Dad) has not suffered as he is 75 years young and still going. The address above is about 5/8 of a mile north of the south termination of LaFayette Rd. at Route 20.
