The average precipitation in December from 1895 - 2014 was around 20 mm.

Trend

It really wasn't that cold, and it didn't snow that much either.

Conclusion

His statement is very invalid. The average temperature was only 20°F and that's not that cold. It also only snowed 20 mm or less than an inch on average. That's like nothing basically. These reasons tell me his statement is false and it really wasn't that bad back in his day.
