Niagara Falls 112 years ago
In Laura Ingalls Wilder's series of books "The Little House on the Prairie" she described living through
this 1911 freeze in Nebraska. It was one of her many fascinating stories telling a true historical background
of an American family in "the good old days".
Her mother had a cousin living in Niagara Falls that year. She told the family that she and her neighbors wokeup in the night feeling something was wrong. It took a while but they finally realized that it was the lack of noise. They had all become so used to the roar of the falls that the silence was unusual enough to alert their senses. Of course at that time nearly all the houses were near the falls. Amazing pictures! Almost 100 years old. Can you imagine walking on Niagara falls?
