April of 1852 was a stormy, cold month. After 33 inches of snow during the month in Hanover, NH, a mild, thawing rain sent the rivers into high flood, including the “greatest flood ever known” up to that time in Wells River, VT. Rain and melted snow for the month added up to 4.87 inches in Hanover, NH according to David Ludlum’s Vermont Weather Book.
