Ok, but what does this have to do with genealogy? At a recent Barfield family reunion, I saw this photo for the first time:
At first I was excited to see a photo of my Great-Grandfather, Nathan Britt, with all four of his children. But when I started looking at the photo I realized: it's snowing! I'm not sure where the family was living at the time, southern Emanuel County or the more northern Elbert County, Georgia. Either way, ground covering snow would have been rare; perhaps an event that occurred every five to ten years. And boy do they look unprepared! Only the youngest girl, Helen, has on a coat. Burr!
