April is not known for its heat waves, though they do make brief appearances every decade. It might seem that has happened more often in recent years, but well-over a century ago on this date, in 1913, thermometers soared into the 80s to near 90, following a very mild and dry winter. Records were set in Burlington at 84 degrees, and 85 degrees in St. Johnsbury.
