Some Blizzard

July 2024

It was with utter amazement and terror that I read “Blizzard” in the February issue. Having read your publication since my father subscribed in the late 1950s, I can say without equivocation that it was the most moving essay I’ve had the pleasure of reading. It was not the most polished article, but rather the most moving.

As a resident of rural Iowa I am all too aware of the potential consequences of a winter blizzard. This article should be required reading for all school superintendents and school board members who think it is better to transport our children “before the storm gets any worse”; keep my children at school.
