Speaking of snow, forty-plus years ago New England saw the Blizzard of '78. I'm not sure what it was like here in NH, but in Massachusetts we had almost four feet of snow. I was a first grade teacher at the time with a 3 year old at home. I went to bed wondering if we'd have school the next day and woke up to more snow than I'd seen in a long time! We didn't go back to school for two weeks!
John Rocco has written a children's book based on his experiences as a 10 year-old during this very blizzard. We have the book here at the library if you want to read it! There's a read-aloud of it, here - and it's not me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IPmDmXzT1o
