Geronimo, Texas . . . country life
Is this a TEXAS SIZED
ICICLE? Is it the Worlds largest Icicle?
Remember when winter was cold?
Remember when February, at least, brought a
chill to the bone?
Remember when even we, in South
Texas, saw icicles?
Fifty five  years ago this month, native son Paul Harborth took
this picture he wanted to share with us. He said; " I took the picture with my trusty
little Ansco camera that I won selling Grit Newspaper
subscriptions." The TEXAS SIZED ICICLE grew on the
water storage tank of the Geronimo Gin Co. in downtown Geronimo,
and young Paul was alert enough to capture it on film. It
must have been as big around as a car at the bottom. Notice too
even by early afternoon, some snow or ice remains on the ground.
Many thanks to Paul Harborth for unselfishly sharing this for all to
enjoy and "remember when". We encourage
everyone to email us
Geronimo pictures so more can "remember when."
