Severe weather is not common across our region at any time of year, and when it does occur it’s most likely to be in mid-summer. But on this date in 1866, a powerful thunderstorm unleashed a tornado on the small village of Barnet, VT, near the Connecticut River. Along with uprooting trees, unroofing or blowing down a number of barns and houses, it destroyed the toll bridge over the Connecticut River.
