One of the coldest winters of the 19th century was that of 1834-35. On this date the severest of the cold that winter sent temperatures well below zero, freezing mercury thermometers at -40, such as those at Montpelier and White River Junction. Other extremes included -38 in Bradford, VT, -36 in Norwich and Hyde Park, and -32 in Hanover, NH. Subzero readings each morning gave that week the label, the “Cold Week”.
