"This was the old Collie place in the early 1900s - My Grand Father owned it, I think. In January 1940 we had about 35 days of sleet & snow. I hunted Rabbits & Dove & Coon in the snow & made bird traps & used corn for bait. You could hear limbs & tree tops breaking from the ice on them. That is when [the] PULP - wood [industry got started] [Planks were] 14' long [and were] started [and] loaded by hand."
