Ha, plenty of sand, doubtful on the NaCl!

None of that nasty stuff around here either. Just sand.

First zero F (-17.7C) of winter. Still have 3 hours before sunrise to go below.

WOW, most winters don't get as low as ZERO here.  That cold air arrived this morning.  It will only be around freezing thing afternoon.  Low expected is 20.

Temps finally dropped in VT to a point where they can start really getting the snowguns going again. Looks like the temps will drop lower into next week. We could use some natural snow though; both for the ski areas and snowmobiling.

I looked for Stillwater airport but all data was missing. Here is nearby station goes back 100+ years averages 1.1 below zero days yearly.

The point you're trying to make is unfounded.  My weather records go back to 2009.  Since 2009, there was only one winter in which the temp sunk below zero.  So I looked over the Stillwater airport records made available by WU starting at 2008.  I got tired of wasting time looking as far back as 1998, because I couldn't find any winter month with a below zero temp low.  So I continue to stand by my word that it is rare here for a winter to have any below zero temps.

Thanks for the interesting chart.  Most of the record temperature extremes go back well before I was born.

I wasn't making a point at all. How does 1 day a year mean something other than rare?
If anything it was substantiating what you said as rare and News Flash weather records do go beyond our lifetime.
   
I did find the airport extreme mins since 1996 and 4 below zero days at least have occurred, all since 2011.
