A very rare June snowstorm struck on this date in 1816, starting what became known as the “Year without a Summer”. According to the newspaper “The North Star” from Danville, Vermont from June of 1816, “on the night of the 7th and the morning of the 8th, a kind of sleet or exceedingly cold snow fell, attended by high winds, and measured in places where it drifted 18 to 20 inches in depth.”
