Growing up, I heard the old ones talk about The Winter of the Deep Snow.
It happened in the early 1900’s on the east coast of Canada and for 6 weeks the farmers had to travel from house to barn from the 2nd storey windows.
The potential for madness must have been palpable. The isolation. The claustrophobia. The fear. They were still talking about it 60 years later.
I have a cat who loves going outdoors and is experiencing snow for the first time which is seemingly having a similar effect on her.
The Madness in the surrounding homes however has nothing to do with last night’s snowfall.
