Excerpt from Connecticut State Entomologist Thirty-Sixth Report, 1936
HE winter of 1935-36 was neither very severe nor extremely mild.
There was a fair amount of snowfall and some steady cold weather but not such extremely low temperatures as in the two preceding winters. On the whole there was probably less alternate freezing and thawing than in most winters, and in general, plants came through in good shape. Peach buds were killed only in a few localities, and there was nearly a full crop of fruit for the first time since 1933.
The precipitation for January, March, April, June, September and October was considerably above the normal, but for February, May, July, August and November it was below the normal. The heaviest rainfall came in June and was more than three times the normal amount. The lightest rainfall was in November. That for both July and November was less than half the normal. The rainfall for the growing season, May to September, inclusive, was nearly four inches or 21 percent above the normal. However, it was not distributed in a normal manner and if a portion of the June precipitation could have fallen in July and August it would undoubtedly have proved a greater benefit to most crops.
