This Day In History: 1927-01-15
During the great snow storm a series of mashups made life miserable for Mrs. Rose Dahlman, the teacher of the mountain school. She and her husband and small daughter returned from a visit to friends in New York City to find their car, which they had left in the Suffern station, would not start. They were able after a long wait to secure a taxi, but the driver could not drive further than the foot of the mountain. It took nearly an hour to walk up the mountain to their home in the raging snow. They discovered that during their absence the kitchen kerosene stove had exploded and had blown out the windows. They were reported to have wished they were back in their friends’ apartment in the city.
