Here is another classic editorial cartoon by Frank Andrea Miller that was published in the Des Moines Register.
Last winter I posted a winter driving cartoon in: Early Winter Driving
This evening I ran across another winter driving cartoon in one of my Grandma’s scrapbooks and thought I would share it. I do like the first one better, so make sure you click on the link above and take a look at it.
Nothing Like a Good Snowstorm to Take Man Down a Notch
One of the keys to understanding editorial cartoons is knowing what is taking place at the time. This cartoon came at a time when man was making great strides forward in different areas of geographic and scientific exploration.
I like the paragraph at the top:
“Ah Yes! Man is a Clever Animal. He has Conquered Land, Sea and Air. He has Harnessed Raging Rivers and Moved Mountains. He has Unlocked the Secret of the Atom… and now He even Challenges Space!”
But, he has not conquered a good snowstorm. Here we have a road that has turned into a parking lot, power lines are down and people are burning an old snow tire just to keep warm.
With all the progress they were still not able to avoid the effects of a snow storm.
Of course 50+ years later we are still brought to our knees by natural disasters or winter storms.
Have you ever been caught in a bad snowstorm?
