Wordless Wednesday: So Cold!

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

In 1922 or 1923, the girls of Harrisonburg Teachers College bundled up for a big snow.   And thanks to the Polar Vortex of 2014, so are we!

    1. I kinda like "Polar Poo" -- a better reflection of what I REALLY think about all this snow!

  6. Is Spotswood Hall still there? I love going to Columbia Teacher's College in New York as the building have so much charm.
    Stay warm! Winter hit here today...it has been in the 70's all month!

    1. Oh yes, Spotswood is there. The only original building not there is Cleveland Cottage which was an old farmhouse that had been on the property when it was purchased to start a college back in the early 1900s. But the name itself lives on -- a dorm.
