The winter of 1798-99 was known as the Long Winter, having started with a heavy snowstorm on the 19th of November. The snow was heavy and deep well into spring. On this date in 1799, a rather discouraged resident of Lancaster, NH, just east of Lunenburg, VT, remarked that the snow in the woods was still a foot deep on the level. Some protected patches would last into June of that year.
