Episode 24: The Schoolhouse Blizzard

The Children’s Blizzard by David Laskin is a great book on the storm. It details the rough conditions settlers faced traveling all the way from Europe to the Great Plains, the Weather Bureau’s beginnings and methods, and the progress of the storm itself.

A short video of the blizzard which features some old photographs from the era.
