School, Winter, College, 1970S, My Son, Well, Hospital, Week, Storm Hit
January 1977 I was away at college, Erie, PA. Will never forget the winters there and particularly this storm. Walking to class, holding onto telephone poles to keep from being blown away! I-90 to Buffalo shut down by a wall of snow. Was able to make it home for Christmas thanks to a classmate. Those were the days.
January 1977! Just made it to the hospital in time to deliver my son, last baby born in that hospital until the roads were clear!
January 1977. my son was born during this storm. it was a harrowing experience getting to the hospital.
January 1977 no school of weeks then split schedules with high scool and grade school in one building
Blizzard of 77 - I was a university student in southern Ontario when this storm hit and remember it well.
A storm I remember well !!! My son was born pre-maturely due to this storm...
January 1977 Oh I remember it well. Our daughter was born in Jan that year.
Blizzard of 77 - I was 9 years old and we didn't have school for a week!
The Great Blizzard of '77. Residents of southern Niagara and western New York had never witnessed such a ferocious winter storm. Most likely, they will never witness one like it again. It was unprecedented.. unchartered.. unbelievable.. It came in an instant, yet its memories have lasted for ever. Southern Niagara and Western New York are familiar with lake effect snow storms, but they usually only last a few hours to a day or so , dumping heavy snow and causing travel problems. But the blizzard of '77 was unlike anything southern Niagara had ever experienced before. It was the result of an unprecedented series of circumstances coming together to produce one of the worst winter storms in Niagara's history. A record cold winter, record deep snow and a powerful long-lasting storm system combined to produce this infamous storm that will forever be part of Niagara weather history. This blog is to share your stories about the great storm. Where we you when it happened? How did it affect you? Let us know.. comment on the blog and I'll add entries to my website. As for me, I was a Grade 9 student at Centennial high school in Welland Ontario when the storm hit. They closed the school around lunchtime or early afternoon, and we got to go home early. Luckily for my brothers and me, we lived within walking distance of our home, as did most kids. So we got home OK and spent the next 4 days marooned at home... listening to local radio station CHOW with all their emergency broadcasting. For many school kids who relied on bus transportation, they were stuck at school for several days before they could be rescued. There was no way for buses to reach the schools as roads become clogged with stuck cars, marooned by the zero visibility and heavy drifting. Snowmobiles became the primary life line and transportation mode that weekend, ferrying hundreds of students and stranded motorists to their loved ones. The storm finally ended on the Tuesday, but school was canceled for the entire week before the region could struggle back to normal again. There have been bad snowstorms since.. but never anything to rival the ferocity and suddenness of the Blizzard of '77. Were you there?
The Blizzard of ‘78
I was a few 3 weeks old when this happen, my mom said we couldnt go any where for a couple weeks...:)

Remember when these flashbars were the improvement over the four-sided flashcubes? "Look! A flashbar! I won't have to change for TEN WHOLE FLASHES!"
... eventually someone figured out how to make a permanent (rechargeable) flash bulb built into all cameras.
Mom had one of these, and I remember the pop of the flash bulbs.

Dust Bowl 1930s Natural Disasters Pictures
The photo below shows red dust blown out to sea ahead of Cyclone Narelle on 9 January 2013, at Onslow in Western Australia. The cyclone did not cause the storm although the storm was in a cloud band related to thunder storm activity due to the cyclone's presence. Strong wind gusts and rain caused the storm to dump the sand and dust which it had gathered while passing Onslow. Some other pics of the same storm: Some other impressive dust storms: Above 3 photographs: Phoenix 2012 China Stratford, Texas, 1935 Dust blown into Sydney from Lake Eyre, 2009 Oklahoma, during the Dust Bowl years 1931-1939 Some other pics of the 1930’s Dust Bowl dust storms: Egypt, 1926.

Shorthand. Before there were Administrative Assistants, there were secretaries. A good secretary "took" shorthand as her boss dictated it. then typed the letter on a typewriter. I learned shorthand in high school & still use it!
Dead language - shorthand. Before there were Administrative Assistants, there were secretaries. A good secretary "took" shorthand as her boss dictated it. then typed the letter on a typewriter. I was always impressed by anyone who could do this. I regret not learning shorthand in junior high school when I took typing.
Gregg's shorthand Still remember some of it....took shorthand for 2 years in high school. Now I look back and think "total waste of time"
Gregg shorthand. I took this class in high school! Because....every girl longed to be a secretary. OMG!
Knowing Gregg Shorthand and typing 60 wpm (with NO mistakes) is what made a gal employable in the 50's & 60's. High school electives.
Tips for better shorthand note writing...I learned this in high school
