Remembering when weather affected all

   Rainy weather turned dirt roads into quagmires which bogged down the new-fangled automobiles. 
   Residents often delayed planned trips around the county if there was even a threat of rain. After all, they had to be able to get home. 
   Farmers who had good crop results, couldn’t harvest them, much less get them to a market over the muddy, rutted roads. 
   Housewives washed their clothes in wringer washers, but had to have good weather to dry them on the line. Weather dictated most aspects of life.
