All the bad weather across the country has me thinking of an editorial cartoon from 1960.
Frank Andrea Miller was an editorial cartoonist for the Des Moines Register from 1953 until his death in 1983. He won a Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning a few years after he drew this one.
Miller used the Olympics as a theme for this cartoon as it was in the minds of many people since the 1960 Winter Olympics were held in Squaw Valley.
I really like this cartoon and the events that he put together. Many people this year are going through this, and it is bringing back many memories for me of growing up during hard winters in Iowa and Kansas.
Do you remember cleaning sidewalks and digging out cars?
The weather history from that time agrees with Grandma.
For me I remember 1988 as being a bad winter in Iowa.
I have shared some other bad winter related Miller cartoons in previous posts. Visit the posts for full size pictures.
