The Battle of Germantown was fought in a morning fog that grew more dense
with the smoke of battle, causing great confusion. Americans firing at each
other contributed to the loss of the battle. (David Ludlum)
...1869...
A great storm struck New England. The storm reportedly was predicted twelve
months in advance by a British officer named Saxby. Heavy rains and high
floods plagued all of New England, with strong winds and high tides over
New Hampshire and Maine. Canton CT was deluged with 12.35 inches of rain.
(David Ludlum)
...1969...
Denver CO received 9.6 inches of snow. October of that year proved to be
the coldest and snowiest of record for Denver, with a total snowfall for
the month of 31.2 inches. (Weather Channel)

Excessive flooding was reported along the Mississippi River and all over
the Midwest, from Ohio to the Milk River in Montana. In some places it was
the worst flooding of record. (Sandra and TI Richard Sanders - 1987)

A storm brought record snows to the northeastern U.S. Snowfall totals
ranged up to 21 inches at North Springfield VT. It was the earliest snow of

damage. The six inch snow at Albany NY was their earliest measurable snow
in 117 years of records. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data) (The

October records. San Luis Obispo was the hot spot in the nation with an
afternoon high of 111 degrees. (The National Weather Summary).
...1988...
Temperatures dipped below freezing in the north central U.S. Five cities in
