One of October’s longest and warmest spells of Gossamer Summer was drawing to a hazy, stagnant close on this date in 1947. For the fourth day in a row, the thermometer reached or exceeded 80 degrees in Burlington, with figures of 84, 85 (the October record), 84, and 80. In spite of the late heat, the winter of 1947-48 was the coldest of that decade.
