Sometimes, these things may seem hard to believe …

Everything I write, no matter how outlandish, has a kernel of truth to it. Most of the time.

So, I wrote this:

Heck, in college the fall commencement was once cancelled after a blizzard dumped over 6 feet of snow on the campus town. The college president was escorted from her home on the back of a four-wheeler and taken to the cafeteria by graduating seniors, where she famously conferred “whatever degrees each of you have earned” to the six students in attendance.

In case anyone thought I’d made up such a snow storm, recently while going through some boxes I found this clipping from 20 years ago:

Snow storm

From The Republican Newspaper, Oakland, MD, December 24, 1992.
