Almost 30 years ago, the first of two severe cold spells brought record cold on this date in 1994. Following a heavy snowstorm of 10 to 20 inches on the 18th, arctic air settled in over the fresh, deep snow cover to send thermometers to the 30s and 40s below zero for the first time in over a decade. Both Chelsea and Cavendish recorded lows of –36, while Island pond only managed a high temperature of minus 6.
