Snow Storm in Daniel's Canyon

Contributor: finnsh Created: 8 months ago Updated: 8 months ago

Roland Pabst (my Dad), born 16 June 1919, was a high school teacher in Roosevelt, Utah for a couple of winters. He taught history and maybe one or two other subjects. This was right after we moved to Springville, Utah in about 1953. My Dad had been teaching seminary for the LDS church for the previous 4 years, but had finished his most recent 2-year teaching assignment in Hinckley, Utah, prior to moving his family to Springville, Utah. My Dad had moved our family to Springville (not sure why he chose that city), but had arrived without a job. Somehow he found a teaching job at the Roosevelt high school, about 130 miles from Springville. His travel route would take him from Springville to Provo, up Provo Canyon to Heber, from Heber along highway 40 through Daniel's Canyon, through Duchesne, and on into Roosevelt. I suspect it was about a 3-4 hour drive in those days, depending on road conditions. My Dad would leave home Sunday evening after sacrament meeting to travel to Roosevelt so he could start teaching on Monday morning. This was before the days of the Sunday block meeting schedule, and sacrament meeting was typically held in the evening, probably about 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. He would teach school during the week, staying in an apartment in Roosevelt, and then travel home to Springville on Friday night after finishing school. My Mom was left at home in Springville with 3 young children, My sister Kathie (age 7), my brother Gay (we call him GL now) (age 1), and me (age 5). We only had one car, so during the week my Mom was stuck at home with 3 young children, and no transportation (other than walking). My Dad would travel the roads during winter driving conditions because he really didn't have a choice if he was going to teach on Monday morning. I remember him talking about the slippery road conditions through Daniel's Canyon, a narrow winding two-lane road. He said that sometimes the car didn't have enough traction to keep climbing the hills, so he would put it in low gear, release the clutch, and get out and push along side the car to help it up the hill. He mentioned that the Dodge had some kind of fluid drive that allowed him to put it in gear and release the clutch without it stalling the engine. The car was an old Dodge (probably somewhere around 1938-1942), similar to the one in the attached picture, except it was a two-tone gray color. I have often wondered about my Dad's courage and persistence to do what was needed to provide for his family even though it meant leaving them during the week, and traveling treacherous roads to and from work. Eventually, he found work in Provo (about 6 miles from Springville) at the Pacific States Cast Iron Pipe Company. This allowed him to continue to support his family, and still be home every night after work. He worked at the pipe plant for the rest of his adult career until he retired in about 1984.

Roland Othell Pabst was 20 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Roland Othell Pabst was 38 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.

Roland Othell Pabst was 45 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
