Duchess' Snowy Domain

Good Morning, Sunny Monday -- First day of February! The Sun has been shining since dawn here in Southwest Colorado, North of Bayfield. The temperature at 9:20a.m. read 21.1F. By Noon the temperature had reached 28.5F. By 2:33 p.m. it was up to 33.4F.

Over this last week we got an additional 7-inches of fresh, wet snow this week, but it compacted down fast with the temps being in the mid 30s. With the compaction of snow on our snow gauge, we now are measuring a compacted snow-base of 34 inches North of Bayfield, Colorado.

We have been staying warm inside and keeping our outside wildlife fed, such as: Sterling Jays, Albert squirrels and Bunny Rabbits that venture into our backyard

We heard about the icy, snow storm that past through New Mexico, Texas panhandle, Oklahoma and Arkansas, which closed some of the interstates and southwest Oklahoma had some power outages.

We have heard from a southern Oklahoma reader on the sunny side of the Arbuckle mountains, "I guess you are still pretty much snowed in? Ours is almost gone, what little we got here. Only 50 miles north of here, it was LOTS of snow and ice. But we escaped it on the sunny side of the Arbuckle Mts."

Tomorrow will the REAL Punxsutawney Phil come out? OR Will his robot groundhog take over? I can not remember where I read that bit of information, but I hope they do not retire the REAL Punxsutawney Phil and start using his robot!

As the story goes for Groundhog Day, February 2nd, was known as Candlemas Day, the day on which, according to the Germans, the Groundhog peeps out of his winter quarters and if he sees his shadow he pops back for another six weeks nap, but if the day be cloudy he remains out, as the weather is to be moderate.

Happy Candlesmas Day! Will we have six more weeks of Winter?

February Facts, Customs and Traditions

Did You know The Romans and Celts regarded February as the start of Spring? February, along with January, was introduced onto the Roman calendar by Numa pompous when the calendar was extended from ten to twelve. It comes from the word "februa" which means cleansing or purification and reflects the rituals undertaken before Spring.

The Anglo Saxons called February "Sol-monath" (cake-month), because cakes were offered to the gods during that month. February was also known to the Saxons as "Sprout-kale" from the sprouting of cabbage or kale. It, February, was also known in Welsh as "Y mis bach" - the little month, because of its 28 days in non-leap years.

If you were to experience this month in Shakespeare's time, about 400 years ago, the second month of the year was called "Feverell." One hundred years afterwards, in Isaac Newton's time period, it had become "Februeer." The modern name of February is only about a hundred years old.

Candlemas Day (Christian Festival of Lights) -- The 2nd of February is Candlemas Day, an ancient festival that marks the midpoint of winter, halfway between the shortest day and the spring equinox. It was thought in olden times, many people used to say that the Christmas season lasted for forty days - until the second day of February.

Robert Herrick in his poem "Ceremonies For Candlemas Eve" writes:
"Down with the rosemary and bays,
Down with the mistletoe;
Instead of holly, now up-raise
The greener box (for snow)."

Candlemas came about on the second day when all the candles, that were used in the church during the coming year, were brought into church and a blessing was said over them. So it was the Festival Day (or "mass") of the Candles.

Because there was no electric lights in those days, candles were important. Some people thought they gave protection against plague and illness and famine.

Borrowed Days - 12-14 February: -- 12 - 14 February were traditionally said to be borrowed from January. If these days were stormy, the year would be favored with good weather. BUT if fine, the year's weather would be foul. The last three days of March were said to be borrowed from April.

Other Weather-lore, Beliefs & Sayings for February: -- It was thought that if the weather was fine and frosty at the close of January and the beginning of February, there would be more winter ahead than behind.

Have you ever heard of this little verse below:
"When the cat lies in the sun in February
She will creep behind the stove in March.
Of all the months of the year
Curse a fair February.
If it thunders in February, it will frost in April.
If February give much snow,
A fine summer it doth foreshow."

Legend of Snowdrop -- There is a flower called "snowdrop" that appears in February and is a symbol of hope. There is a legend that goes something like this: The snowdrop became the symbol of hope when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden. When Eve was about to give up hope that the cold winters would never end, an angel appeared. She transformed some of the snowflakes into snowdrop flowers, proving that the winters do eventually give way tot he spring.

An old rhyme which says, "The snowdrop, in purest white array, First rears her head on Candlemas day."

The name snowdrop does not mean "drop" of snow. It means drop as in eardrop, the old word for earring. Snowdrops are also known as Candlemas bells. The Latin name for the snow drop is Galanthus, which means "milk flower."

Mysterious 8th February -- On the night of 8th of February, 1855, in England, one of the strangest, mysterious things happened.

It was during the night, heavy snowfall blinkered the countryside and small villages of Southern devon. In their houses, people huddled beneath their bedclothes on a night of intense cold. Slowly the first light of dawn came to reveal a bleak frozen landscape and the footprints.

To the astonishment of all, when people left their houses they found thousands of mystery footsteps. These were in the shape of a cloven hoof, but they moved in single file. More astonishingly was the fact that they covered a distance of one hundred miles or more and went through fields, gardens, towns, and even over rooftops.

At first people were intrigued, but then became very frightened. The news swept quickly over the country and many people believed the footprints belonged to the devil. The London newspapers published the story and experts came to investigate the footprints, before the snow melted. Nobody could offer an satisfactory solution to the mystery. What were these single-file, cloven hoof prints left behind?

All this talk of February traditions brings us to 14th of February and what many today call "St. Valentines Day.

To some it was originally thought to be the day on which birds chose their mates. There were many traditions and tales associated with romance activites on Valentines day including the following:

* The first man an unmarried woman saw on 14th February would be her future husband;

* If the names of all a girl's suitors were written on paper and wrapped in clay and the clay put into water, the piece that rose to the surface first would contain the name of her husband-to-be.

* If a woman saw a robin flying overhead on Valentines Day, it meant she would marry a sailor. If she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a rich person.

Kissing Friday -- What was it? Have you ever heard of "Kissing Friday" (the friday after Ash Wednesday)?

It is the Friday of "Shrove Week" (Shrove Tuesday marks 40 days before Easter). Kissing Friday was when English schoolboys were once entitled to kiss girls without fear of punishment or rejection, a custom that lasted until at least the 1940s.

In Sileby, Leicestershire, this day was also known as "Nippy Hug Day." It was there that men could demand a kiss from the woman of their choice, but if their petition was denied, they had the right to louse, or pinch, the woman's posterior -- perhaps mimicking the pinching of lice.

Also Last but not least, is the 25th of February which marks the birthday of this NW Okie.

Looking For Photos of Capron, OK

NW Okie's Great Uncle Charles Robert McGill operated the McGill Drugstore in Capron, Oklahoma after his tenure as a teacher. I know somewhere in amongst my old photos that there is a picture of the McGill Drugstore of Capron, Oklahoma. BUT ... Alas, I can not lay my hands upon it at the moment.

Does anyone out there reading this have any old photos of Capron and its citizens that could help Mark Tidwell put together a "photo essay" of the Capron, Oklahoma area?

On the OKWOODS message board at GC-Gateway Rootsweb Mark Tidwell posted on 26 jan 2010, the following, "Looking for photos of Capron, Oklahoma. Any and all photos of buildings and people in the Capron area. 2nd Great Uncle, Robert O PINSON, along with his son 'n law, Richard HENTON, owned and operated hotel and livery in Capron from 1910 to about 1916. Trying to put together a photo essay of the Capron area. Capron was laid out has a town in 1906 and was blown away by a tornado in May 1939. Any help is appreciated. Direct email is Please subject line, Capron Oklahoma. Mark Tidwell."

Oklahoma Winter

Winter finally makes it's way to Oklahoma this week.

Roy says, 28 Jan 2010, "The TV weather guys and gals are happy because they got it right this time. Western Oklahoma had an ice storm early today, followed by snow. The Interstate Highway at Weatherford was blocked in both directions for awhile by overturned 18-wheelers.Two that completely blocked both lanes of traffic in each direction I believe, plus at least 4 others just a short distance away.

"At that time, the Perry weather was still clear, but at about 12:45 there was a slight freezing rain mixed with tiny pellets of sleet coming down. It didn't bother the streets at all at that time. Our nutrition site was shut down until Monday in anticipation of a major winter storm and our school system dismissed at about 2 pm. We might still get the storm.

"Later this afternoon it began snowing in earnest but quit again as night fell. I think we only received a couple of inches but the weather folks are predicting a little more to come. This little winter storm has already moved on in some areas and isn't expected to cause many more problems in our state. The Nichol's Hills area (in Northwest Oklahoma City) lost electricity to most of the homes there and the electric company had crews out working to restore it.

29 Jan 2010, Roy says, "I just rechecked the latest weather report (after going outside for more firewood) to find that the snow is now coming down at about 1" per hour for the next 3 hours and that this slower moving snow-storm is expected to begin ending tomorrow morning; and that on Sunday we are supposed to get back up to about 30 degrees for a high. After that there should be a slow warming trend. No loss of electricity here but there's been some problems in Oklahoma City (including one TV station (channel 4) that's off the air at this moment). Our gasoline prices have remained steady at $2.479 at the independents and $2.499 at Conoco and Phillips."

30 Jan 2010, Roy says, "The sun has been shining brightly and our snow is melting here in Perry, Oklahoma. We're expecting temperatures back up in the 30's tomorrow (Sunday). Also, Oklahoma City's TV Channel 4, KTVY (used to be WKY-TV in 'olden' days) or KFOR (can't keep up with the call-letter changes) is back on the air after about 24 hours. My dogs (Miniature Pinschers) are tired of being cooped up in the bathroom and are ready to go out and 'guard' against the squirrels."

"I was somewhat surprised to notice a trusted outdoor thermometer reading 39 degrees this evening those weather folks didn't reckon on our county being warmer than theirs. Our temps were about the warmest in the state for awhile today."

Pioneer Dyer Information

This week we received a comment on our Vol. 10, Iss. 2 featuring Pioneer Thomas Jefferson Dyer - Alva, OK.

David V. Marin, EMAIL:, says, "There seems to be quite a discrepancy in the birth date of Mr Dyer's first child, Lulie, and the date given for her mother's death. Lulie was born in August of 1879 but her mother died in October of 1880 on the same day as her maternal grandfather Cornelious, according to records of the Rock Creek cemetery of Carroll County, Arkansas. I am Lulie's grandson."

Literary Baseball Magazine

Back about six or seven years ago we heard from someone concerning "Spitball: The Literary Baseball Magazine" page, which now has a NEW URL. It went something like this:

"Linda - I've so enjoyed your loving recreation of your grandfather's scrapbook, I'd like to share a few links that I visited as I was following the Bill McGill story I've also passed your URL along to a few of my friends in the Society for American Baseball Research who - I believe - will find great value in your work.

History of Baseball in Oklahoma

Here is another feature that goes back to Vol. 5, Iss. 4 that mentions of baseball in Oklahoma. The person was from Tulsa, Oklahoma and mentioned, "I'm the co-author of the Oklahoma Heritage Association's 1999 book, Glory Days of Summer: The History of Baseball in Oklahoma. I wish that we would have had access to the McGill scrapbook when our book was compiled.

"Although the book did get the best design award of the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Smithsonian Institute for the year, we surely could have used some of the pictures and early day history. At page 386 of our book, the major league record of William John "Parson" or "Bill" McGill as a pitcher for the St. Louis Browns in 1907 is given. He is one of nearly 1,500 players with Oklahoma connections who played in the major leagues. If he would have had the good fortune of being born in what is now Oklahoma, he would have been the first player born from Oklahoma who played in the major leagues. The Encyclopedia of Minor League Baseball by Miles Wolff and Lloyd Johnson (published by Baseball America, P. O. Box 2089, Durham, N.C. 27702,. $9.95 plus $7 shipping and handling) will have league records for all of the minor league teams he played in.

"If he led the league in any category, that also will be included. In 1907, the Austin Senators won the Texas League with a record of 88-52 .629. The leading percentage pitcher for the year was Parson McGill, Austin, .789, 15-4. at page 154. In 1909, the Guthrie Senators finished third in the 8-team Western Association behind the Enid Railroaders and the Muskogee Navigators.

"The league's leading pitcher was Floyd Willis of Guthrie, 22 wins, 5 losses, .815. (page 164). You may request a copy of his contract card (no charge) from the National Baseball Hall of Fame ( It will show all of the teams he played for and dates." -- Royse "Crash" Parr, Tulsa, Oklahoma"

Request From Kenneth Updike

We are in the process of taking down Kenneth Updike's stories and ramblings of "Growing Up In Oklahoma" because Kenneth asked us, "To remove all of my previous writings to you about my Ramblins and personal stories that I told you and your readers."

"My Son has had all of my writings, and notes copyrighted so that we can put them in a book or booklet. His idea. I really have no objections to this, but he insists we can be viewed by more people. I leave it up to him. Thanks for your help in the past, and I still read your Okie Legacy nearly every week."

NW Okie says and asks, "If you find some of Kenneth's Ramblings that I have missed, Please email me the link with Vol. and Iss. numbers so that this NW Okie can remove them."

Thanks for your help!
