Halloween is often haunted by memories of trick-or-treating in the snow, or in the cold, but before the days of various miniature cherubs dressed as their favorite hero or greatest nightmare, October’s coldest weather frightened anyone not ready for winter. On this date in 1925, the snowiest, coldest October concluded with shocking 4 degrees in Pittsburg, NH, a tomb-like 2 degrees in Garfield, VT, and a bone-chilling 1 degree in Van Buren, ME.
