The Dec. 29, 1933 St. Albans Messenger (under a banner headline 'Mercury Shrivels") reported weather that "was something for the books."

It was 48 below zero at 6 a.m. that morning at the Fairfax Falls Public Electric Light plant. Newspaper correspondents of that time reported these temperatures:
-35 on St. Albans Hill; -38 in West Berkshire; -40 in Bakersfield; -38 in Richford; -32 in St. Albans City; -34 at St. Albans Bay; and -36 in Franklin.

Well, I never hope to beat or equal this record which happened when I was about a month old.  Heard stories all the time I was growing about what a cold winter that was.
