One of the more extended spells of “Gossamer Summer” weather was underway on this date in 1938. Temperatures reached 70 degrees or more from the 5th through the 8th throughout New England. The climax occurred on the 7th, with Rutland hitting 76, and Burlington and St. Johnsbury topping out at 74, setting November records up to that time. The month would do a dramatic turn about, with the coldest weather so early in November by the 25th.
