1780 January 5 (Wednesday). Through Divine Favour this was a bright, pleasant Day. Both my Sons and my Steers join with a number of the Street Neighbors with Cattle and Shovels to break the Roads. Tis difficult to compute the Heighth or Depth of it. I am almost ready to conclude that there has not been so much Snow upon the Ground at a Time ever since the GREAT STORM in year 1717.
