    That's funny, the first thing we did was count the stars.

    I just googled 'Merchants Awning Co. Ltd.,' and they're a Toronto concern, but I don't know if they're still in business.

    My now mid 40 year old Son in a 61 Vette I sold back in the early 80's.

    There's a resto shop that sells restored vehicles here in town, with not one, nor two, but three early Sixties Corvettes for sale. I'll have to see if I can make a stop and get pics of what all they have for sale currently.

    This video is a reminder of a wonderful teen year in Rochester when this blizzard closed down our neighborhood for days. They had to bring in large loaders and graders to clear our street. We shoveled most of the 28 neighbors driveways and used sleds to bring what they needed from the local stores. Good honest hard work and memories of how we also made the experience fun.

    Man, that was a cool video. I recall reading a story that my son brought home from school when he was in elementary school. It was just like what you described with the kids taking the sleds and toboggins to get food and supplies for the neighborhood.
    Perhaps it was based on this same blizzard.

    Rochester always had some memorable storms every once in awhile. Snow drifts as high as our porch roof in 1960, another big storm in 1971. I had a snowmobile then and my future Father-in-law borrowed it to bring some of his stranded friends from work at Kodak to his home about 4 miles away. In times like this most people reach out and make the best of it helping others. I guess I inherited that gene from my Dad. In 1991 we had a crippling ice storm and I was very proud to see how my own young kids stepped up to help Family and our neighbors. 1993 was another that only lasted a short time. Kids and the dog had a great time with cleanup as Dad pulled the streetrod out to move it to another bay in the barn. Every time there is a good snow it brings back some wonderful Family memories. Our Son now shares winter excitement with his Family in Michigan and our Daughters Family enjoys us sharing our winter excitement since work moved them to Florida a few years ago. The Grandsons always say how they miss the winter snow they once had here in Rochester.
