I seriously doubt it would last *that* long.

The best climatic models of this sort of thing show a much weaker,
and much briefer, effect than the oldest, most dramatic "nuclear
winer" models.  I suspect the worst one would get is a decade or
so of autumnal conditions, not centuries of wintery conditions.
