As my dad told the story, during the winter, they used to walk to school 10 miles in the snow, up hill both ways!! I questioned this story, ’cause I’d never seen it snow in Aptos, but, my father assured me it was true! It wasn’t until years later, that my father-in-law told the same story, and, then both would laugh! I then had my doubts about this story, and even later on I found no historical record of snow in Aptos. Suckered into the Rhodes/Jellison stories!
