    For those who like history…Interesting to read.

  2. I remember a hard, cold, and snowy winter in 1947-48, in Talladega, County, near the Coosa River. The snow came to my waist, I was a short-9 year old, at the time. It lasted for weeks. In fact I remember a lot of cold, cold and snowy weather when I was growing up in Alabama. Recently, It has progressively grown warmer during the winter months. Now. I live in Santa Monica, Ca. and we recently had snow flurries at the foot of Santa Monica Mountains, where I live. We also had frost—unheard of in the past. But last few years our weather here is more like I remember Alabama weather in the 1980’s and 1990, while I was living there. Hey Donna, I love all the information you distribute through the Alabama Pioneers endeavor. Keep up the good and necessary work!
