also a lot of houses. Many lives were lost, and a great many cattle and sheep drowned.

On the 27th February, 1933, there came a great fall of snow, which lasted about a week. There were a lot of lives lost. It was impossible for traffic to travel and on that account there was no delivery or letters. There was also a scarcity of food and people living far out in the country could not get in to the town.
There were a lot of animals lost in the snow. There were also many damages - Telegraph and electric wires were broken.
The snow was very deep in places, where there were snowdrifts it was about eight or nine feet high.
