One of the earlier records of weather in Vermont is that of General Martin’s field notes. David Ludlum’s “Vermont Weather Book” notes that in this date in 1828, General Martin indicated 9.7 inches of rain from the 2nd to the 4th, causing a most destructive freshet – or flood – in Windsor, VT. Likely, this amount of rain would have been the remnants of some tropical storm or former hurricane.
