Letter: Big snow led to grand adventure
Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Concerning that January 22nd, '63 snow, I was 11 years old. Highway 768 was completely blocked for a number of days from the top of the hill above our dairy barn much of the way out toward Chance. Hwy 768 saw a state road grader two or three days after the snow make its way from Ms Wheeler's store to a huge, fence post topper drift at the curve where Peg Shaffer's driveway is today. The grader driver could not push his way through and slid down through the fence into our field and left the grader overnight.
The next morning, another grader was brought in to pull the first one out and tore out another section of our fence before finally freeing the first grader and making a way through the drift. I remember walking the mile from our house to Ms. Wheeler's store to pick up a few items that we could have done without but Mom and Dad allowed me the opportunity for a grand adventure to save us all from starvation. At least that is the way it played out in my mind at that time! Ahhh, "precious memories, how they linger, how they ever flood my soul..."
