December 19th’s sunrise is at 7:21, setting some 8 hours and 52 minutes later at 4:13 this evening. 

1998 featured the warmest December of record for most locations in northern New England, yet that year on this date, Burlington set a snowfall record!  Low pressure tracking up the east coast gave a quick 5 to 10 inches of snow to the region, which included Burlington at 5.2 inches, the greatest amount of snow that has fallen specifically on the 19th of December since records began there in 1871.
