Yes, we did and Clara Puddell remembers it well.  It was on this day, February 13th, 1948 that Clara gave birth to her daughter Carol in Moose Jaw.  Clara had come in from the farm near Tuxford (just north of Moose Jaw) to have her baby.  However, she couldn't get back home due to the fact all the roads were blocked with heavy snow.

Clara told us the story when she called in to wish her daughter a "Happy Birthday" on the Evans Florist Birthday and Anniversary Show on 800 CHAB.

And, after Carol heard her mom on the radio today, she sent us some momentos the family kept from 71 years ago.

It's a photo of their scrapbook where they have a photo of the airplane and the ticket they bought for $10.00 to fly from Moose Jaw to Tuxford!
