Long time ago

Have just read an old document telling about the year of 1867-1868.
There was some really bad years in this area. The grain was frozen, the ice on the lakes was still there until june, and the pepole starve.

  1. So interesting. We tend to forget, when the weather brings hard times, that it has happened before.

  2. Yes it´s easy to forget. Seems that we will get an "extreme" winter this year also. -20 almost every day since early november and it seems to keep going that way

  3. Here also, and more than one foot of snow so far. We are afraid of what spring will bring, because our ground water is already too high and we have many problems in the basement and with the lagoon. Poor Scott is pulling out his hair. Good thing he has a lot of it.
