I was sent a copy of John Rocoo’s book, Blizzard. I knew one thing about John and that was that he wrote and illustrated this book about the Blizzard of ’78. I was four when that happened and we lived right over the Rhode Island border, close to where the story takes place. I remember being in our house with no electricity, a two year old sister and a brand new puppy. I’m sure that my Mom remembers that blizzard much more vividly than the rest of us because she had to deal with the new puppy and two kids under 5. My Dad was out helping to plow the snow. I remember being told that if I even step out of the house I’d get lost in a snow drift.
Reading this book to the kids made me think back to that Blizzard as much as my four year old self remembered. Mostly it was things that people told me and no so much what we did during that time. I can’t remember it all that clearly. John is older than me and when the Blizzard of 78 hit he was old enough to be outside and help. Blizzard is a story of how a young boy helped his neighborhood during that Blizzard.
