Message:  It did snow pretty hard last night, and snowing lightly off and on today, but it won't stay. It is 38deg. F right now. too warm for snow.

In 1969, in the Willamette Valley, we had about 3 feet of snow in 24 hours. Eugene had no snow plow. Then the temp dopped below freezing. We sat that way for a couple weeks. No food in the stores, everything shut down. The kids had the best time building snow forts. They built up a slide to the roof, climbed on the roof and slid down. The parents worked to keep clothes dry, food in their tummies, hot cocoa coming all the time. Great memory.
