If you're over 50 years old and grew up in Minnesota, you heard about the "Armistice Day Blizzard" from your parents. It was one of those "significant emotional events"--not unlike the Kennedy assassination--that defined that generation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

William H. Hull recorded the experiences of those who survived, and stories of those who did not. Not only is his account a record of these oral histories, but it documents how differently people lived in 1940--many without conveniences (electricity, running water) we take for granted. If you're interested in Minnesota history or weather, this book is not to be missed. Mr. Hull has done a great service by documenting these accounts before they were lost to history.
