This month’s weather not withstanding, snow often arrives to stay in late November or early December. It was on this date in 1842 that a storm swept up the east coast in classic fashion, with a foot or more of snow in interior New England and New York. The storm in Hanover, NH brought the weeks total to 26 inches, beginning one of the snowiest and coldest winters of the 19th century.
