I can't remember the first time I saw snow. I was born in Ashtabula, Ohio. We had plenty of snow there.

I used to visit Akron, OH almost every year when my in-laws were still alive. My wife Betsy took good care of them. I tagged along as a helper of sort-support her in any way I could. I enjoyed the time I spent with them mostly family activities. Yes it’s snow country up there. And yes I swam in Lake Erie when I was courting Betsy. Memories!
