Winter in Millville

By - Library Web Services / Archives Assistant December 12th, 2016

It is a very snowy day in Millville today. All the windows of Ohrstrom frame the perfect winter scene wherever you look. This view through the grand windows of Baker Reading Room looks out over recently frozen Lower School Pond. #ohrstromlibrary #bakerreadingroom #winter #snowfall #winterinmillville #librariesofinstagram #iglibraries #robertamsternarchitects #lowerschoolpond #iamsps #mackintosh

Slip slidin’ away:

The side-walks this winter have excited much comment . . .to say that they have been dangerous would be to pass the matter over lightly, and to try and describe the sad experiences of some of our unwarned guests would be getting a little personal. . . However, Nature has come to avenge us, and just as we have been slipping for weeks, now in his turn Old Winter himself is fast slipping away.

An old chestnut:

It is many years since the chestnuts have been so plentiful as they have been of late.  If the old weather predictions are true, this fact should presage a hard winter. Everybody will pray devoutly that such may be the case, as anything worse than the abominable season of last year cannot be imagined.
