1896: Ten Inches of Snow in Connecticut

Middletown, Conn., Dec. 17.–Steam railroad traffic is greatly delayed by the record breaking storm which now prevails, and the trolley lines are badly crippled. The snow is 10 inches on the level, and it is drifted four and five feet deep. All country roads leading into the city are blocked.

From the Austin Daily Herald (Austin, Minnesota), Thursday, December 17, 1896.
