Extreme Weather in Germany

From the London Papers 1767

“Frankfurt Jan 24 We hear from the country of Eichsfield, that the wells are either frozen or dried up.; that the mills have stopped working for 3 weeks; and that they have no bread but what is made of rye or barley.

Kirn on the Nobe, Jan 26 the cold has been so great in these parts, that many cattle, though they were housed, have perished; and to proeerve the rest, they have been put into cellars, and kept warm by fires. The wolves are on the rods, and have devour’d 20 people; and as all the mills are stopped by the ice, we are apprehensive of a want of bread. ”
