Remembrance of Winter Past

Our uncommonly warm weather in the first days of winter is setting all kinds of records. As a reminder of what winters along the Hudson used to be like, here is this little notice which appeared in the Hudson Evening Register for December 23, 1915.

  1. An hour to cross the river through the ice! I find it interesting to think about the way people lived in those years. When the ice formed (but was still too thin or broken to walk on), the people on either side of the river would have had to drive to Troy-Waterford for a bridge across the Hudson. All the other bridges and tunnels of 1915 were rail-only, so people and freight could have crossed with a long detour.
