A hurricane struck southeastern New England. It was the most violent in
thirty years. Thousands of trees blocked roads in Massachsuetts and Rhode
Island. (David Ludlum)
...1843...
"Indian Summer" was routed by cold and snow that brought sleighing from the
Poconos to Vermont. A foot of snow blanketed Haverhill NH and Newberry VT,
and 18 to 24 inches were reported in some of the higher elevations. Snow
stayed on the ground until the next spring. (22nd-23rd) (Sandra and TI
Richard Sanders - 1987) (The Weather Channel)
...1987...
Thirteen cities in the southeastern U.S. reported record low temperatures

thunderstorms deluged Corpus Christi TX with five inches of rain.
Winnemucca NV reported their first measurable rain in ninety-two days,
while Yakima WA reported a record 96 days in a row without measurable
rainfall. (Storm Data) (The National Weather Summary)
