Long ago there was a snow storm, in the year 1912. My father told me about it. He said that it started on a Tuesday and never stopped till Saturday. The hedges could not be seen. There were many lives lost in the storm. The snow was about six feet high. My father said it was the biggest storm he had seen of heard of. There were animals and people lost in the storm.
