Early snowfalls are not always the signal of a tough winter on the way. Three inches of snow fell on this date in 1780 in Pomfret according to Jonathan Carpenter’s diary, and while the previous winter was harsh, the winter of 1780-81 was fairly mild, the mildest winter of the Revolutionary War period.
