Wow great memories.  My summer porch was at my grandma's and then my aunt's crappy big old farmhouse, all sloping floors, linoleum and layers upon layers of paint everywhere. It was a dirt cellar. We didn't EVER go down there, as there were horrible stories we couldn't hear until we grew up.  (suicides)
There was a ramshackle barn, reasonable dangerous but no parent ever forbid play.  And a chicken coop long abandoned and over run by huge lilacs.  We couldn't even get in there so overgrown it was.

I didn't have air conditioning until I moved away from home in my late teens.

I grew up in a big house with huge avocado, mango, apple, and orange trees and high hedges surrounding the house in Tampa.  We had fans in the windows, and an intake ceiling fan in the hall. Dark real wood cut groove paneling was throughout the house and helped to keep us from baking inside and to stay comfortable.

One thing was for sure, my parents didn't have to get on us to take baths as we were all too happy to get wet and cool.  We went to the beach often then. We all enjoyed those trips.

Nevertheless, I vowed that when I got older, I would have an in-door job and house, both with air conditioning---missions accomplished.   :D

Ann - Was that Mistake by the Lake Cleveland itself or just the Indians baseball team?  I hear they fixed the old girl up a bit and the person who got the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to go there should get the key to the city, although back in the '70's they probably would have returned the damned thing. ;)

Oh but we do get the benefit of lake affect snow in the winter.  I'll forever remember January 26, 1978.  We woke to no power, gas or water.  fortunately, we were able to force open a window on the back side of the house.  The snow drifts completely blanketed our house and it took several hours just to make a path to the door.  We managed to stay quite warm with just the fireplace since our house was a huge igloo.  The worst part was that we had to entertain each other and communicate....lol  If memory serves me correctly, it was several weeks before power was restored and a bit of normalcy returned.

living less than a quarter of mile off Lake Erie (in Cleveland, just a few blocks out of Lakewood) it was 2 winters of lake effect snow that drove us to move 50 miles south (below Cuyhoga Valley) where Canton got half the snow Cleveland did. brrrr. I didn't know winters could be so cold and miserable. I don't understand how anyone is able to stay alive over in Buffalo where they catch the brunt of lake-effect snow.

Between the heat - and the dry weather now - I sure wish SC could borrow 6 to 8 inches of Ohio snow for a couple of days. LOL

"Mistake on the Lake" referred to Cleveland - the whole of Cleveland really (aka "the greater Cleveland area" as it's often called), which includes the surrounding suburbs and is most of Cuyahoga county. I think it's the only city that had a river catch fire. :o

I sure remember lake-effect snow. Fun times, if you're a kid. Lots of "snow days" at school. ;D I bet Ray remembers too - I believe he grew up in the Buffalo area (if I remember correctly) - no wonder he moved to Florida! I remember a few pretty fierce blizzards, but I don't remember the power being out for days (hours and hours, yes, days, no). I was living in Solon in '78 and while we got a lot of snow there, it wasn't as bad as the snow we got when I was living in Garfield Hts, which is further to the north. It's the house in Garfield I was referring to earlier.

Think again. Filthydelphia's Schuylkill River caught on fire more than once in the late 1800's. I don't think this was unheard of in urban industrial areas in the old days, though admittedly the one in Cleveland is the one read about most often, I suppose due to the size of it. Newtown Creek and the Gowanus in Brooklyn had early Industrial Era fire issues.

I'll tell ya why I like snow days-because when the schools are closed, my work is closed.  So nice... (and we had quite a few this past winter).
