Ludlow, VT Storm, May 1892

Another exceptional storm visited the town May 21, 1892, when two feet of snow fell, and lasted several days. The storm occurred on Thursday, and on Sunday following, people went to church in sleighs. Many gardens and fields of corn had been planted, but received only a little damage. Cattle suffered very much, and many died. The price of hay advanced to twenty-two and twenty-five dollars per ton, and was very scarce. Corn meal rose from a dollar up to a dollar and a half per hundred, and was hard to get at that.
