February is “the Month of the Tilting Road”

In Lewiston, Tuscarora History on February 8, 2014 at 7:22 pm

    From the Niagara Falls Gazette, February 28, 1951…

    Month of the Tilting Road…

Chief Clinton Rickard is one oldtimer who subscribes enthusiastically to the claim that Niagara frontier winters are not nearly as severe as they used to be.  And he quotes Indian history to prove it.

The Tuscarora chief recalls that when he was a boy and farmers hereabouts depended solely on horses and wagons for their winter transportation regular country roads were not used for several months each year.  Deep snow made lanes impassable and drifts covered the fences so the farmers struck off across the fields and traveled over temporary winter routes. 

Along about this time of the year the snow would begin to melt but the slanting sun’s rays would cut down one sleigh track more than the other.  As one side of the road  fell away the sleighs passed over it with a decided tilt. 

Chief Rickard links those days with the present by pointing out that the Tuscorara word for February means “month of the tilting road.”  It was a highly descriptive name in the years when February snows were deep and lasting.  But nowadays there is no tilting road because the winters are not what they used to be…
