Mormon History, Jan 11, 1849

[Hosea Stout Diary] Thursday Jan 11th 1849. This morning the wind still blew hard from the South.the mountain sides & places in the valley begins to look black being now bare of snow & we begin to feel like having a respite from this long & tedious snow storm but in this we were disappointed for about nine the wind changed to the N. W. & was followed by a hard snow storm which lasted untill about dark, depositing a new snow six inches deep which entirely blasted our hopeful idea of soon sowing wheat and other things which we were so very anxious to be doing. I was at home all day.
