75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 7, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 7, 1938
 This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

Starting March 1, a weekly comment on these daily entries appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Friday of the week, will continue, with links to some of these daily entries.

Here is the daily entry for Thursday, April 7:

 Colder than the Dickens. An awful wind. Had to burn icy wood. Had a time trying to keep warm. Stuffed the north kitchen windows. Bro't everything into the kitchen so it wouldn't freeze. All the roads blocked.

My comments: Cold April snow storm. Wow! I shiver just reading this. Burning icy wood in the stove not nice!

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. Having burn icy wood, I can almost feel the chill. Web wood sizzles, and produces more smoke than heat.

  2. For sure! Not the best thing to be doing... unless no choice. ;-)
