The stretch of very cold and at times record-breaking weather approached two weeks longevity. Dec 25-31 was the coldest final week to any year on record. Temperatures stayed below 20 degrees for 12 days in a row at Grand Rapids -- one day shy of the record (1912).

Lake-effect snow produced large totals downwind of the lakes the first week of January, bit little snow fell elsewhere. The lake-effect snow was often observed to be "fluffy" and would gradually settle and compact over time.
