From "Weather History with Chalie Wilson":

"1962
One of the coldest December outbreaks in memory for the southeastern U.S. and Florida was courtesy of arctic high pressure that pushed a cold front through the central Bahamas into the northwest Caribbean Sea. A severe freeze occurred in Florida. Morning lows ranged from the single digits and teens in the northern part of the state, the 20s in the central, mid 30s across the mainland south to the upper 30s to mid 40s in the Keys. It was the coldest December weather of the 20th century and caused millions of dollars damage to crops and foliage. In Georgia, the morning low of -9 at Blairsville established a state record for the month of December. Millions of dollars damage to crops resulted."


Emphasis added was my own. -9...wow....I shiver just typing that.

I remember a story that my dad told about a Towns County law officer in a car chase. Lake Chatuge was frozen over and the guy that was being chased drove his car across the lake and the officer followed him in his car, and the ice didn't break. That was probably the same year that it got down to -9 degrees.Go to Top of Page

No, the lake usually isn't frozen. Sometimes it is frozen a little around the edges, but I've never seen it frozen enough to drive over.Go to Top of Page
