It was March 1957 and the caption reads “THE MORNING AFTER the 56-hour blow of wind and snow In March, 1957, is illustrated in this West Main Street scene in Boise City. The residence with only the roof showing at extreme right of the Cimarron Implement Company was the home of Mrs. Barbara McDonnold, 79 years of age at that time. All windows and doors of the residence were completely snowed under. Neighbors dug to a window Monday following the storm and found her happy in spite of her temporary imprisonment.” with the fallowing pictures then and 59 years later.

    My mother, Kathy Parker, was 4 years old, and fondly remembers how much fun she had running up and down the snow berm to hop on to the top of her house.
