It might be cold today, but it’s not this bad:
The legendary “Cold Friday” of Jan. 19, 1810 brought such terrible winds and frigid temperature that people talked and wrote about it for generations. Tales of the killer weather event made their way into town histories, journals and court records long after it happened. They told of the many people who froze to death while traveling along the highways. The wind blew down houses, barns and vast numbers of timber trees. Ships wrecked, cattle froze in their barns and old people died of hypothermia inside their homes. It was so cold pens wouldn’t write and water froze in glasses, though they were right next to the fireplace.
What made Cold Friday so lethal was the sudden, steep drop in temperature that caught people unaware. Several journals claimed the mercury dropped 100 degrees in Boston in less than 24 hours, from 67 to 33 below zero, Michael R. Doyle reported in 2005. The American Register reported the mercury dropped from 48 degrees on Thursday to nine below zero on Cold Friday. In Portsmouth, N.H., it went from 54 on Thursday to minus 12 on Friday — and minus 13 on Saturday. http://www.newenglandhistoricalsociety.com/cold-friday-1810/
