75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 6, 1937
This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of eighteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.
Since midway through 2010, a weekly update/comments blog entry began to appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Tuesday of the week, will continue, with links to these daily entries.
[August 1, 1937, at Ledges]
Here is the short entry for Friday, August 6:
Hot. Cloudy. Verna gone last nite & she's tired again. I feel swell. Stormed at nite. Out to Harmon Riis field fire. Electrical storm.
Here is the long entry for Friday, August 6:
Hot again. Cloudy. Verna gone again last nite & she;s all tired again. I feel swell. Collecting yet. Rained in pm. An awful storm at nite. We drove out to Harmon Riis. Stubble field burned. Electrical storm in nite. Struck Alf Davis' barn.
My comments: Storms are always scary events… especially when lightning sets fires...
Families are Forever! ;-)
