This storm was the backdrop for one of my earliest memories. Was about 3 and a half at the time. We lived in a house on Northwest’s Elm street. The level of the porch was about 5 feet above the yard. My Dad and I were going out to play in the snow and he picked me up and dropped me off the porch and into the deep snow.

I remember shoveling my neighbor's sidewalk. It took me two hours and all I got was 15 cents. I threw it on his sidewalk! I showed him!

I remember that the Butler Township schools, including McQuistion, were closed for a whole week -- a week of sled riding and snowball fights.
