Snowy Sumas - The difference between 1980 and 2014

photographed by Burl Beane  Ca.1980

This is a picture taken by Burl Brooks Beane in  approximately 1980.  Maybe someone can help me date the cars in the photo. This is facing east on 1st Street half way between Lawson Street and Sumas Avenue.  Notice  how deep the drifting snow is.  I remember some severe snowstorms that would totally put the town to a standstill.

This picture was taken at the very same location as the earlier photograph taken by my father about 34 years ago.  The snow storms aren't nearly  as severe as they used to be.
