As of Friday, we are now tied with 1908 for the longest stretch of dry weather in Lexington recorded history. The record in 1908 was 37 days starting on the 22nd of August and ending on the 27th of September. It’s not uncommon for the “rain spigot” to “shut off” in the early fall, but we’ve only seen this incredible dry stretch a handful of times.
In case you were wondering, the last time we were this dry Theodore Roosevelt was president. That was also the same year the Model T was invented. More events that happened in 1908 are below.
