This one comes from a 1959 scrapbook.
On March 4th a blizzard hit Iowa that continued to rage until the 6th. Snow drifts of 5-6 feet were common with some over 12 feet high.
People were marooned all over the place, schools were closed, train service stopped and crews were unable to cope with the snow until the storm was spent.
I really like the different sections of the cartoon. From the adult reaction to that of the kids.
My favorite part is in the middle where we have people lined up at a bus stop.
One of the people in line makes the statement.
I’ll bet shooting at the moon has something to do with this!
Then as now we are quick to find a reason for bad weather.
What do you blame bad weather on? Is it global warming or an El Nino?
