Take A Look Back At Pennsylvania’s Year Without A Summer

Most of us, albeit sometimes begrudgingly, will admit that we’ve complained about the long, hot days of summer. Of course, that’s after we swore, during the coldest days of winter, that we would never complain about the heat again. We do it every year in PA, don’t we? Well, can you imagine a year without a summer? It happened once before — and it plunged much of North America and Europe into disaster. Let’s take a look back at Pennsylvania’s year without a summer.
