One of the most intense cold waves on modern record was in progress on this date in 1968. Subzero temperatures stretched over 5 consecutive days in Burlington resulting in the earliest freezing over of Lake Champlain on record. A re-enforcing shot of arctic air arrived, holding maximums to –4 in Burlington and 0 in Woodstock. By the next morning it was –27 in Burlington, -32 in Woodstock, and –40 in Colebrook, NH. If its any comfort, 2 January thaws followed later in the month.
