An Inconvenient Record, Maine's Cold Withstands Scientific Disbelief.

Previously, the record in Maine was -48 Fahrenheit. All that changed January 16th,
but it still only tied my new home of Vermont.

Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram - Augusta - "(-50) beats Maine's old record of 48 below zero set in 1925 in Van Buren, and ties the record for coldest temperature recorded in New England. That reading was made in 1933 in Bloomfield, Vt.

The record on New Hampshire's Mount Washington is minus-47.

Maine's minus-50 reading was made on Jan. 16 at a remote site along the Big Black River near the Quebec border as the region was in the grip of a blast of arctic air."

What an inconvenient record.
