The Snow That Ate New England

The best heading that I can think of for a great snowstorm in 1717 that began in late February and dumped up to 6 feet of snow all over the region with some drifts rising 25 feet high. The states that got if the worst were Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. It was such a snowstorm that the snow buried houses, livestock was lost, and the Boston Puritans canceled their church service for two weeks. 

 Out of all this tragedy that the snow caused one hero came through. A postman who was determined not to lose out to the snow left his horse behind, put on a pair of snowshoes and delivered the mail from Boston to New York. I am sure you have heard the saying – the mail must go through.
