125 years ago this day, many people in New York city found themselves fighting to stay alive.
Without the modern weather forecasting we have today, no one saw it coming. Even other places in the Northeast were hit even harder. Hurricane Sandy hit the coast with wind and water, but this blizzard was just as powerful and it lasted 3 days. Who will survive, the young woman trying to make to the city on the trian that use coal stoves to heat the cars, the lawyer who decides to walk the long blocks or the factory workers trying to get home? What about the animals? Horses pulled everything and how can they survive being outside in this storm? Life and death struggles that we think could not happen today, but please read and learn from their mistakes. Mistakes in a blizzard could cost you. If you like the Weather Channel, you will love this.

Eat, breaths, and thinks all the time about getting kids to read more books. This was started for my junior high students to have a place to find suggestions for books when I was not at their school. But usage comes from all over the world. I must be doing something right.
