A warm, thawing rain melted a very thin covering of snow on this date in 1980, delaying the arrival of steady snow cover until the 20th, the latest on modern records. Record temperatures for this date include 52 in Montpelier, 54 in St. Johnsbury, and 56 in Burlington. In spite of the lack of snow, 1980 went on to be a terrific year for maple sugaring.
