I had told my buddies back in Mississippi that HELL would freeze over before I got married .... guess what ... it was a minus 19 below zero the day we got married in January 1967 in Amsterdam, NY ... had about 3 feet of snow and ice on the ground and it was blowing ice sideways ... I had to keep our car running all night to make sure we could get to the church the next morning.
