Is this the first? How did we do that? How can we use the past to learn about today? In 2019, the Western History and Genealogy blog asked these sorts of questions every week.

Archivist Katie detailed Denver's slippery snow removal history for us back in March, only to have it come back to everyone's mind with our storm in November.
