I lived in my first apartment then, in St. Bernard, a three room shotgun place.
Hmmm we may be some what aquainted with each other or at least no the names. I lived in that area at the time as well although from what you say you are a smidge older than me
. I remember this winter as well made for some fast sled rides behind the elementary school. The snow wasn't powdered it was frozen and crusted over, made the ride into "dead mans ditch" real fun for us kids...lol.
