"Year in which there was no summer", otherwise known to weather historians as "1800 and frozen to death" killing frost once again damages sparse corn corp in northern New England...loss of this and other crops led to severe famine in much of New England that winter...and helped spur western migration in spring of 1817.

New England (1965)
A total of 2.5 inches of snow on top of Mt. Washington set an August record. Vermont had a reading of only 25 degrees, while Nantucket had a chilly 39 degrees. Earliest freeze on record at many stations.

Houston, TX (1980)
