January 31st, 1950, was a day of historic cold. Many of the region’s coldest days on record occurred on this date in 1950.
The winter of late 1949 and 1950 was the longest stretch of cold weather in the 20th century. An arctic blast plunged into the Pacific Northwest in the final days of 1949, and surges of cold air continued into early February 1950. Periods of snow fell during these six weeks, but not as much as the more than six feet that fell during the winter of 1968-69, the snowiest winter in the 20th century.
Nevertheless, clear nights and fresh fallen snow led to many single digit low temperatures in January 1950. The 31st was the coldest of them all. Everett dropped to 2 degrees above zero. Monroe was 2 degrees below, Bothell 6 degrees below, Darrington 9 degrees below, and Skykomish a whopping 10 degrees below degrees zero.
It is hard to imagine the North Sound having temperatures near or below zero. Yet it happened during that historic winter and could happen again someday.
The average temperature in January 1950 was only 35 degrees. Average temperature is the mean between high and low temperatures for each day through a month. It was so cold that area lakes froze over, roads were frequently covered in snow and ice making transportation challenging, and plumbers were busy with frozen pipes when temperatures finally moderated in February.
Many North Sound elders who were here during that frozen winter have many a story to tell about that winter. If you have a story to share, go to the everettpost Facebook site and share your story. Perhaps you could be interviewed about your experience.
In the meantime, stay warm and healthy!

Statement from Snohomish County PUD on the outage this week:
SnoPUD Crews Continue Restoration Efforts in Wake of Storm Access issues have hampered restoration efforts so far, but PUD crews continue to make progress
EVERETT, Wash. – Since a strong windstorm hit the Puget Sound region on Tuesday night, Snohomish County PUD crews have restored power to more than 200,000 customers and completed upwards of 1,200 separate restoration incidents. As of 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning, approximately 970 PUD customers remain without power, most of them in the Lake Goodwin and Stanwood areas. Many of these customers have been without power for more than 60 hours.
“We appreciate the frustration some of our customers are experiencing, and we want them to know we understand,” said John Haarlow, Snohomish PUD CEO/GM. “Our PUD customers should know we are doing everything we can do to get their power on as quickly and safely as possible. Our crews continue to work through very challenging conditions, and we will not rest until every customer has their power restored.”
The PUD anticipates all but a few hundred customers to be restored by Saturday evening.
The extent of the damage across the PUD’s service area has extended repair times. The high winds from the storm combined with the saturated ground from extensive rain in the previous days created an environment in which trees and poles fell more easily. The damage is requiring PUD crews to replace poles and damaged equipment and wait for downed trees to be cleared to gain access to many jobs.
“We have sent many of our crews to the northern portion of the county and Camano Island to help with restoration efforts in that area,” said Aaron Janisko, who is overseeing storm restoration as the PUD Senior Manager of Regional Design and Construction Services. “We appreciate the patience our customers have shown throughout this storm.”
Early in the storm, the restoration efforts of PUD crews focused on the transmission system, delaying assessment on the utility’s distribution system. While early repairs brought up thousands of customers, as crews move down the priority list, completed work restored power to smaller numbers of customers.
“Most of the remaining outages are impacting smaller pockets of customers,” said Janisko. “That means time-consuming repairs bring up fewer customers and can seem like we’re slowing down. Be assured, our crews are working just as hard now as they did at the beginning of the storm.”
Access issues have been a challenge throughout the restoration process. Felled trees across roadways, poles down in hard-to-reach areas and even flooded areas have made it difficult and time consuming for crews to get to their jobs to make repairs.
The PUD wants to reinforce the message that customers should never attempt to repair wires or other electrical equipment themselves during an outage. Attempting to fix electrical lines is not only dangerous, it can be deadly. Customers should remain at least 30 feet away from downed power lines.
Mutual aid crews from across the state of Washington have traveled to Snohomish County and Camano Island to help with restoration efforts. Crews from Benton PUD, Okanogan PUD, Clallam PUD, Grays Harbor PUD, Douglas PUD and Grant PUD have all traveled to the Puget Sound to helped complete work and restore power to Snohomish PUD customers.
Plumbers expect increase in emergency calls over the holidays
inancial compensation for a person like this might be over a hundred thousand dollars. The typical person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old-and they served in the navy in the 1960s and 1970s. The financial compensation claim does not involve suing the navy. It does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.
“Our top priority is seeing to it that US Navy Veterans get compensated if they had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy decades ago and who now have lung cancer. Most of these people never get compensated because they and their family members are not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust fund was set up for them too-not just mesothelioma. If your husband or dad has recently been diagnosed lung cancer, he is a Navy Veteran and he had heavy exposure to asbestos when he served in the navy decades ago-please call the attorneys at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. We think you will be glad you did.” www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Oregon US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate’s free services are available to people with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma in Portland, Eugene, Salem, Gresham, Hillsboro, Beaverton, Bend, Medford, Springfield, Corvallis or anywhere in Oregon. https://Oregon.USNavyLungCancer.Com
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Oregon include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, factory workers, truck building workers, maritime workers, pulp and paper mill workers, public utility workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. In most instances, the diagnosed person’s exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.com/
According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.
The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com
