This past winter, Floral Hall and several cattle sheds on the Warrensburgh Fairgrounds collapsed due to the great weight of the snow. The lower farm barn on the Cunningham estate suffered the same fate. We had only 99 days of sleighing this winter and an aggregate snowfall of 7 feet and eight inches.
Already townspeople are harking back 22 years to the great blizzard of 1888, which occurred on March 12. We could yet eclipse that record. If next summer is as old-fashioned as this winter has been, there will indeed be a hot time in the old town of Warrensburgh.
