Notes for H
The blizzard of 1936 is a time that Hulda will never forget. The following has been transcribed from a local news paper article that she kept regarding the event.

[BO:The Blizzard of 1936:BO]

On Friday evening, February 7, 1936, a severe blizzard struck northeast Nebraska, accompanied by a heavy snow, a strong northwest wind and sub-zero temperatures. Highways were drifted shut, autoist were stranded, farms and towns were snowbound, trains could not move. Many communities were without daily papers for many days and kept in touch with the outside world by radio. Business was paralyzed.
Before the territory had recovered from the first storm another descended on Thursday evening, February 13, and there was additional snow on Friday evening, February 14, Saturday evening, February 15, and Sunday evening February 16.
The blizzard was the climax of a period of 38 days, from January 15 to February 21, with an average temperature of 8 below zero, accompanied by 40 inches of snow. One night the temperature dropped to 30 below and there were three nights of 25 below. Only 3 nights of the period saw a temperature of zero or above.

[BO:In Wake of 'Worst Blizzard of Century'
Were stalled in car within short distance of destination Thursday Evening

Mrs. Charles Pendergast, 21 and her younger sister Miss Holda Reiland, living ten miles northwest of Plainview, who suffered badly frozen legs when trapped in Thursday's storm, were brought Friday to Plainview hospital for treatment. Both are in serious conditions.
Mrs. Pendergast's legs were frozen to her hips, and Miss Reiland's to her Knees when their car stalled five and one-quarter miles east of Creighton and they walked three-fourths of a mile through deep snow drifts to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ira Pendergast's, six miles east of Creighton. It is believed their legs were frozen while they were in their stalled automobile.
A doctor, being unable to reach this Pendergast home, gave instructions over the telephone and ordered the two women taken to Plainview hospital.
Seventy-five men Friday shoveled through one mile of four feet snow so the two women could be taken to Creighton and placed on a train.
A like number of men scooped through three miles of snow drifts north of Plainview in an attempt to reach the suffering women. The Creighton men reached the Pendergast home about a half hour ahead of the Plainview scoopers and they were taken to Creighton and placed aboard the train and brought to the hospital here.
Mrs. Pendergast was placed on a mattress and springs, carried from the farm house to a truck in which she rode to Creighton. Miss Reiland was carried in the arms of men to the truck.
The C. & N. W. train coming from Winner was held a short time at Creighton until the truck carring the two women reached the depot.
Mrs. Pedergast was married last September. She and her sister were caught in the raging storm while trying to get to the home of her husband's parents, Mr. and Mrs Ira Pendergast. Several automobiles were stalled at the place where the two women were forced to abandon their machine and wade through snow drifts.
Reports reaching this office today are to the effect that Mrs. Pendergast is getting along as well as can be expected but that it will be sometime before she will be completely out of danger. Her sister, Miss Reiland was allowed to leave the hospital Monday morning.

Hulda's legs have bothered her ever since. In March of 1997 she had to have one leg amputated right above the knee because of very poor circulation. Her other leg continues to bother her at this time.

Hulda's first name is spelled Holda on her birth certificate. However, she did not like that spelling, so she changed it unofficially.
