The Coldest Acre in Appalachia

The Appalachian Mountains of the United States are known for their remarkable beauty, lush vegetation and rich history. With all of this being said, they can also be quite unforgiving to the unprepared traveler – especially in the frigid winter months of the year.

Spanning from Northern Alabama to Southern Canada, it should go without saying that the weather throughout this chain of mountains can lend itself to great extremes.

This past autumn, we set out to locate the coldest single acre in all of Appalachia – not necessarily because we desired to go there, but more to provide our warm-weather desiring readers with knowledge of the 4,840-square yard area they should avoid at all costs on a chilly winter’s evening.

    The article sloppily confuses Appalachia and Appalachian; NOBODY considers New Hampshire to be part of Appalachia!

      That’s what I was thinking. Too many rich people in NH to actually be part of Appalachia.

    I have worked at the summit of Mount Washington during all four seasons and even the summer months can be darned cold. People are taken off the mountain for hypothermia during the summer months because they assume that because it’s 87 degrees at the base that it will be warm at the summit. But more often than not once folks get above the treeline they find the temps can be in the 40’s with high winds and they aren’t dressed properly for the weather conditions.
