Surviving a touch of snowmageddon
BECKER – Shy of a couple of rough snow storms when he was too young to know or has already forgotten about, Jamie Nelson associates winter weather with a light dusting at most in Mississippi. Recent trips north this season with Stanford & Son auctioning company in Lackey proved to be eye opening experiences for a true winter.
“My first trip was to Chicago while my daughter was on Christmas break and we saw most of it around Southern Illinois when it was past knee-deep on her. My last trip was to Iowa a couple of weeks ago and after stopping in Aurora [Ill.] on the way back, I got used to shoveling snow just to get in and out,” Nelson said.
Several northern states have been hit repeatedly with one round of blanketing snow after another throughout the winter.
“Around here, if they say snow is coming tomorrow, you’ll see all the school closings on the news tomorrow. It was crazy for me to keep working like a normal day to bring items back for auction here,” Nelson said.
Stanford and Sons, Inc. will host a gun auction Saturday, March 16 beginning at 6 p.m. at its location at Old Columbus Road and Highway 45 in
