  1. Never had a raincoat . Galoshes worn over shoes . Were those snow pants ? Didn’t have . No electronics . I grew up near N.Y.C. in the 50’s . You guessed the 70’s . 😏

  2. Absolutely not. Off by decades! I must have a young style. But I rarely need to wear wet weather gear–or snow gear.

  3. Someone should be on the Gong show…Weather Channel or me? LOL Wish I was born in the 2000 year. Absolutely love your shows.

  4. 1980’s??? My daughter was born in the 1980’s. I was born in the 50’s. But it’s nice to know I can think like my daughter. LOL

  5. Well, you missed it by two decades but that’s okay. WXGranny rolls with the times and the winds. ;~)

  6. Nope. It gave me the 60’s and I was born in the seventies. How sad apparently I seem older than I am by the clothing I like 🙁

  7. Not bad. They guessed ’60s and I was born in ’56. Maybe the duck boots were a giveaway, IDK.
    A lot of people I know wore them when I was younger.

  8. I was born in the 50’s and you guessed 80’s –We wore the yellow raincoats and “Rubbers”. The “Dorky” kids had “Cooties”

  9. Missed by at least 2 decades. BD tomorrow, year 1950. Wouldn’t use most of what was presented, probably just an umbrella.

  10. Wrong, I was born in the 1940’s. Doesn’t seem as if we had any special rain gear except an umbrella and boots.
