NC Artic Blast

With the recent cold snap I thought it might be interesting to find out the lowest recorded temperature in the state.  A record low of  -34 degrees was recorded on Mount Mitchell on January 21, 1985.  This 1938 postcard shows the mountain on what appears to be a more agreeable Spring day, just 72 days away.
