One of New England’s greatest snowstorms brought eastern and southern New England 20 to 40 inches of snow, whipped into drifts of 5 to 10 feet, in the cold and snowy winter of 1978. In southern and eastern portions of Vermont, Rutland was digging out from 24 inches of snow, yet Burlington had only 3 to 4 inches. Cavendish and Rochester both picked up 25 inches, as did Hanover, NH, with Lancaster, NH totaling 24 inches.
