RE: '77 snow storm


We lost our power for over a week in that storm!  I lost a collection of

I was in college in PA at the time. It wasn't a whole lot better there.
All the cars were buried and we watched the PennDot plow trucks tear off
whole sides of cars going down the main streets.

Lovely experience.  And y'all wonder why I moved to Texas??  LOL
