In 1904, New Jersey Plunged Into An Arctic Freeze That Makes This Year’s Winter Look Downright Mild
There are officially only two weeks left of winter and we couldn’t be more relieved; we’ve had some wild weather this season. A cold snap in January brought temperatures down to record setting levels in towns like Newark and Brunswick. New Year’s Eve was absolutely frigid and certain cities had icy streaks lasting over 10 days – for nearly two weeks, the mercury never rose above 32 degrees.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
So, if you’re complaining about the current weather…remember, it has been worse. We’ve been through it! Many of us survived the winter of 1979 and many more made it through the snowy 1995-1996 season. So, get your snow blowers ready and relax…spring is almost here. And rejoice that we’re not living through the 2015 ice storm again. For more on that, click here.
