The summer of 1933, famous for the beginnings of the Dust Bowl in the Great Plains, was also hot and dry locally. On this date a heat wave was underway, topping out at 96 degrees in Cornwall, VT in the Champlain basin, and 95 in Enosburg Falls, and Rutland. The 95 degrees measured in St. Johnsbury was the first of 3 consecutive record highs, records which still stand today.
