The third of three heavy snowfalls occurred on this date in 1804. Yale University President John Day, likely relying on press reports, noted 4 to 6 feet of snow on the ground throughout New England in his weather journal. This heavy snow load caused the new bridge between Hanover, NH and Norwich, VT to collapse.
