Northeast Arkansas has been pretty chilly lately but not really cold. That is about to change though as it is supposed to get below freezing tomorrow. Needless to say I have been(and am!) concerned with staying warm(and the heating bill).
I saw a post the other day about the weather that Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote about in her book The Long Winter. The post has a picture taken back then of a train almost buried in snow. In that book the people in the town Laura lived in almost starved because the trains didn’t keep running.
This made me feel so thankful that I don’t have that problem. I have never seen snow anywhere that deep and never been that cold or hungry either. I hope that is true for most of you guys as well.
If you haven’t read that book it is really good and can give you a pretty good idea of how folks lived back in the 1880’s.
