PostSubject: New Article about The Hard Winter   Sat Nov 10, 2012 1:16 pm

One of the speakers at both Laurapalooza 2010 and 2012 was Barbara Mayes Boustead who is a meteorologist who wondered if what Laura wrote about the hard winter was actually documented in the archives of weather info collected in the area back in the 1800's. As a student of weather who had access to this data Barb discovered that Laura's account in The Long Winter is pretty much accurate with the records. It was so interesting to hear her speak both years about how Laura described blizzards and tornados and how they were recorded in weather history.
Barb has written an article that is now available in the November-December issue of Weatherwise Magazine. Please check it out at Weatherwise Magazine I am going to have to get my hands on a copy of this magazine somehow. Barb posted that it is available in many bookstores including chains. Any ideas how this Canadian can get one? Is any one chain better than another?
Please help.

Thanks for this information and the link to her blog, Marilyn. You could probably try contacting the magazine. They might be willing to sell a copy of that issue to you directly.

A friend of Barb's posted this link on her facebook page. You can buy single copies of this magazine here. The newest issue isn't listed yet so if you want one, you will have to wait for a few days. Make sure you order Nov-Dec 2012.

Thanks for this interesting link, Marylin! I don't remember exactly where I did reaf sometihing similar about the hard winter. In fact I believe that other writers had depicted this hard and long winter exactly the same way Laura had. Thanks again! Thumbsup

Vanesa.

PostSubject: The Accuracy of The Long Winter   Sat Dec 06, 2014 3:57 pm

I know this is an old thread but I just found another article about just how accurate Laura was in describing the weather of 1880 1881 so many years after it happened.  I think The Long Winter is my favourite LH book because of all the trials the family had to endure.  Now it can be proven that she was right on track in her descriptions, how cool.
