We saw a record-breaking low temperature last week of 12 degrees, breaking the previous record of 13 degrees that stretched all the way back to 1911.
We were all shivering in our boots, but (lucky for us) it wasn’t even close to the coldest day Pittsburgh has seen.
That title is held by Jan. 19, 1994, when the day’s mean temperature was a mind- and extremity-numbing 13 degrees below zero. The high temperature for the day provided little relief, clocking in at minus 3 degrees.
So, while nobody is happy about their snot freezing, let’s be thankful that we aren’t in 1994.
