BLIZZARD by P.S. Joshi
Well into the winter of 1977-78, we were living in an apartment in northeast Ohio. Our son was about 1 1/2 and I was 8 months pregnant with our daughter.
The local radio station gave a blizzard warning. It was so quiet outside you could hear yourself breathe. It seemed human movement in the city had stopped.
Then it began. It snowed and snowed and snowed. Soon there was news of shelter for people in areas lacking electricity. Calls came in from farmers without electricy and with cows to be milked. Were there generators available?
Fortunately, we didn’t lose electricity.
