The Book of Me, Written By You - Prompt 15: Snow

The Book of Me, Written By You
Prompt 15: Snow

"The Book of Me, Written By You" is a GeneaBloggers project created by Julie Goucher of the Anglers Rest blog. The concept: a series of blogging and writing prompts that help family historians capture their own memories and write about themselves.

Prompt 15: Snow

This week’s prompt is Snow
    •    Do you live in area where you routinely have snow?

This Prompt turns out to be comical due to timing. Yesterday, we got 8-10 inches of snow. Very unusual, but very timely for the prompt. Historically, this are gets 4 inches in all of December…

I grew up in Iowa… very common for much snow through the winter. We moved to Tucson, Arizona, in 1983, and then, it snowed there. So we are very accustomed to snow… even though we try to avoid it.

    •    How old were you when you first saw snow? - six months
    •    Do you remember it? - No, but I remember a huge snowstorm on May 28, 1947, in Iowa
    ◦    Did you make snowmen? - Of course
    ◦    Throw Snowballs - Of course
    ◦    Sledge Rides - not really, but about every other kind of "in the snow" transportation, Tractors, Truck, etc.
    •    What is the image that first came to mind when you read snow? - Outside my windows, today!
    •    What does snow
    ◦    feel like,
    ◦    smell like
    •    How do you see snow? - Far too often!!

Families are Forever!
