Though much of Vermont and New Hampshire were still wilderness in the late 1700’s, early pioneers regarded the snow storm that occurred on this date in 1798 as one of the worst. 30 inches were measured in Hanover, NH at Dartmouth College. It was the beginning of a long winter, as evidenced at Keene, NH, where on May 11th of the following spring, 2-3 feet of snow was still in the woods!
