Quote from the diary of William Colbert, a Methodist Circuit Rider up in Centre County: "A very cold morning. It was surprising to see so much snow on the ground at this season of the year. The limbs of the peach trees broke, and large limbs of the oaks broke down, and saplings bent across the road. It began to snow last night before we went to bed. I came out of my way by Lamb's to Phillip Antes."
