Snowfall in 1966 outdid recent dump

Letter writer Peter Teichroew remembers a 37-inch snow fall in October 1966.


I read with interest the story in your paper of the record snowfall of Nov. 15.

Well, I still remember the 37-inch snowfall here in October of 1966.

It snowed from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. the next day.

I had to use a fork lift with a bulldozer blade on it to clear the roads at the sawmill 10 miles up Dog Creek Road where I worked.

I still have a photo of my car completely buried in snow that makes a 15-inch snowfall look sick.
