Hey Lori,

I decided to start another thread as I felt as if we were hijacking doug2222's thread.

Oh the snow. I do remember the snow vividly. As kids we would dig tunnels beneath the snow and we could stand up and walk through the tunnels. No sky, no ground, just that white/ off white color surrounding you in every direction.

My grandparents basically owned an entire block with houses and their beauty and barber shop. Their house was above the beauty shop like three or four stories up. In the rear of these houses and shops there was a parking lot that seemed to go straight up creating a "v" that filled up every winter.

I'm glad my mention of Ohio generated our conversation. I've just recently started the Ohio collecting with a little more focus on Dayton, but any Ohio is desirable to me. I recently got a few covers and have enjoyes attempting to gather the history behind them.

I agree with you sirruspoe, and glad you started this thread instead.

About the snow, yes vivid is a good description of my childhood memories also. It seems that 8-12 inches of the stuff, will tend to do that. Building tunnels and snowmen, sled-riding, those perfect snowflakes, having wet feet from the snow coming in at the top of your boots, and getting snow days off school all rank high. Later in life though, the memories turn to shoveling out for hours, having to drive in white-outs, scraping an inch of ice off the car, etc. I am just about to the point of heading further south. On a good note, I had a great childhood that would not have been the same without the white stuff.

I am planning on attending my first stamp club meeting next week. The dates are posted on but not the times. I have sent an email requesting the time, but haven't got a response. If I don't hear back by that day, I think I will just show up at the location at 7:00, and see what is up.

If I can get organized, and can come up with a way to get that Cincinnati marked stamp into a photo of some kind, I will post it for you to see.

Thanks for the response, and the conversation.
