Thursday, April 2, 1914: Nothing much doing.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Since Grandma didn’t write much a hundred years ago today, I’m going to do a follow-up to yesterday’s diary entry when Grandma wrote:
. . . Twasn’t nice and warm at all, at all.
I found a clue about what the weather was like in a newspaper article that appeared on the front page of the Milton Evening Standard a hundred years ago today. Milton is located about 4 miles from McEwenville.
Sometimes doing research about a hundred years ago reminds me that I should be grateful for the little things—like paved roads.
