April 30th of 1903 was the hottest April day on most record books at the time, hitting a toasty 86 in St. Johnsbury. A sharp cold front sliced through the region on May first, and by the morning of the 2nd, temperatures had fallen to the teens and 20s, setting records for some of the coldest May readings. And yet nary a drop of rain fell, part of an extreme drought that left no measurable rain in Burlington all month, its driest month on record.
