Record blizzard makes Levittown a winter wonderland
Fellow Division Avenue High School alumni who now live in sunbelt places such as Florida and Southern California only get to see blizzards on television and the internet. It's not nice to gloat, but some of us do.
The best thing about heavy snow when we were teenagers was that school was sometimes closed. The second best thing was the cash that could be made by shoveling sidewalks. Those were pre-snow blower years.
The photos of the very recent record snowfall were snapped by Marilyn Monsrud '63 on her street in Levittown. She reports that winds reached 60 miles per hour. One of the black and white photos is of Marilyn and her sister Susan from 1950 on Boat Lane.
The other vintage shot is of snowy Blue Bell Lane from around 1954 and was provided by Karen Biro Hewson '60. We don't know if Karen is gloating, but she lives in Florida.
