35 years ago yesterday, it snowed here in Tampa.
It was quite a shocker. There were accidents everywhere because no one knew how to drive on the snow. The bridges and overpasses were closed down due to multiple accidents. No one knew that bridges got icy faster than the roads.
Kids and adults got out and played in the snow.
Floridians do not have ice scrapers. Credit cards were used instead.
This happened on January 19, 1977. Al and I had moved from Nebraska just 3 years earlier, so we weren’t impressed at all with the falling white stuff!
Except for a visit to North Dakota one February, and one snow in south Georgia a few years ago, that is the last snow I have seen.
I’d like to keep it that way.
