Terrible Storm

Out of stock
When two old grandfathers, Walt and Fred, sit together on the porch, talk turns to that warm March day back in 1888. It wasn't supposed to snow, but by noon it was thick on the ground. "Ey-ah. Came quick when it came all right." Both young men had to abandon their work to take cover for three interminable days-shy Fred in a bustling inn, gregarious Walt in a lonely barn. "Terrible storm, Fred." "Worse one ever, Walt." Watercolors and black ink show both perspectives. Author's note.
