My cousin sent me this picture from Alva, Oklahoma on Monday. The blizzard dumped 20 inches of snow and caused the Sonic Drive-In to collapse. No more soft drink happy hours in Alva for a while it seems.
My great-grandmother’s house in Alva, Oklahoma. I wish I could live there all year long. [I should have added that my great-grandmother is no longer living and her house is now a bed & breakfast called The Vintage Inn.]
Old postcard of the Bell Hotel in Alva, Oklahoma. Late 1950s or early 1960s.
I spent most of the past week in Alva and other small northwestern Oklahoma towns visiting relatives for Thanksgiving and am finally back home in Dallas now. This “fireproof” hotel is still standing but is no longer in operation.
