Backyard Almanac: "this is the weather we'll tell the visitors about next summer"

Feb 19, 2021

Joe the Chihuahua is ready for his closeup on Park Point Beach

Twelve days of an average temp of  -12˚.

250 straight hours of temps that never got above -2˚.

And while we only got two measly record temps out of the cold snap, on the 13th and 14th, Larry Weber says it was still pretty impressive.

Not only does he enthuse "I wouldn't have wanted to miss it!", Larry knows that when we're sweating through an afternoon on the beach or looking for some shade to park a lawn chair, these days will be the stuff of stories and legend.
