March walks that thin line between seasons, so we can go from mild to wild a short order, as was the case on this date in 1847. Temperatures of near 40 and rain developing soon turned to snow as winds strengthened from the northeast according to Zaddock Thompson’s records from Burlington, ending up with 17 inches of snow, badly drifted, blocking roads. 22 inches was reported in Lunenburg, and 30 inches in Barnard, VT.
