White Snow, Black Lace is a story based on the historical events of the 1888 blizzard that went down in history as the “School Children’s Blizzard of 1888." All blizzards for the next hundred years would be compared to that blizzard for intensity and loss of life.

When the blizzard arrived it caught many children homeward bound, out of school. The sun had been shining and the weather warm and lovely. Many teachers allowed the children to leave a bit earlier. The intensity of the storm was devastating and the full force of the storm would not be known until after the spring thaw.

Our homes, clothing, transportation, and communications now are so much better, but back 100 years ago, it was a different world. We enter that world in White Snow, Black Lace.
