Congratulations! If you made it through Milwaukee’s brutal winter unscathed, you are a part of history. For you young ’uns, this was likely the coldest winter you’ve ever endured. For all of us, the 52 days with more than a dusting of snowfall was a record (tied with three other brutal seasons). We also somehow made it through 92 straight days of snow on the ground. And remember that stretch of 28 (!) days when the mercury never rose above freezing? Us neither. (Thanks Christian Brothers!) All in all, it was the 10th-coldest winter on record.
