Gosh! I remember this snow, I was staying near Manchester at Ashton under lyne and I couldn't go home because of the snow... my aunt and uncle were not too pleased at that, I was a bit of a handful!

Love Granny

That is a lot of snow. That busted water main made a beautiful scene. One of our bloggers has 40 inches now. Helen

I can't remember it but I remember my family talking about it.

The women waiting in a queue were probably waiting to buy food as lots of it was still rationed. It was only two years after the end of the war. Rationing continued into the fifties. No wonder we were all slimmer then!

Well, we sure could use a little snow here!!! I know it can become a burden after a time--but I do so love the snow.

I remember a lot of snow falling whe I was a kid. Times have surely changed.

Burr 1947 snow was too deep for enjoyment. Peace

Those remind me of the snow we had when I was a kid and lived at home in Gordon. The people and kids (me among them)shoveled the snow out between us and Verona so the mail and milk man and bread man could get through.

Good Grief Charlie Brown....that was a LOT of snow. I have vague memory of snow that I couldn't walk in when I was maybe 6 or 7, but it wouldn't have been this one. My brother had to throw me over his shoulder and carry me home from school. It was up to my waist. I hear we are going to get above freezing this week. Hope you will also!

Thanks for showing those photos of that winter.That winter of 1947 was our first winter in the Netherlands. And a very severe one too! We had no proper house then. We lived for three years in a summerhouse only fit for summerholidays. We had no bathroom and an outhouse for a toilet.

Patty great gallery. Thanks for sharing. I remember when my sister and I were born over 38 years ago, my parents had to walk through snow tunnels, of course that was in Europe. And sometimes we complain about 5 cm of snow, lol.
Patty wishing you happy new year 2010, and hopefully not to much snow :). Anna :)

Hi Patty ~~ I loved your quote of the day- it's a good one.
1947 must have been a really cold one. Your rump roast sounded yummy
and I must make an apple salad myself
as it sounded nice.
I cooked on a very hot day, and you kept warm cooking. Take great care
dear friend, Love, Merle.
