1964-65 Winter Recalled

Hi Dennis,
In 1964, being a Freshman at Tech and rooming in DHH I remember the Thanksgiving Break. It was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and it was so warm we were going to class in tee shirts. That night is started snowing and when we returned to DHH on the Sunday, there was 3 feet or more of snow. Planks of lumber were laid on top of the snow so we could walk on them to get into the dorm.

The month of December, 1964, it snowed everyday for a total of 192 inches. The college year 64-65 we had 328 inches total of snow fall.

Snow statutes were at their best!
