Following 1816’s Year Without A Summer, the fall was mild, lasting into early January, 1817. But starting mid-month, cold and snowy weather began a six week siege that would make February of 1817 one of the hardest winter months since the “cold winters of the Revolution”. Severe cold sent thermometers on January 29th down to -30 in Hanover, NH and Windsor, VT.
