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)
"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
