January 13, 1999 – A Very, Very Cold Day

On this date, temperatures plummeted to -55° F at the town of Allagash in northern Maine, smashing the state’s all-time record of -48° F set at the town of Van Buren on January 19, 1925. The reading represents the lowest temperature ever observed east of the Mississippi River!

January 18, 2021 – Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Since 1986, the third Monday in January has been a federal holiday in observance of the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., a Baptist minister, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and civil rights leader dedicated to nonviolence. This is a day to honor King’s principles, perhaps best exemplified by his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963: “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’”
