Here's what was going on, the last time 16 degrees was the low temperature for Buffalo, on November 13th, 1986:
- Ronald Reagan was in the middle of his second term as the 40th President of the United States
- The Buffalo Bills beat the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier that week 7-3, recording their third of four wins on the season
- The Buffalo Sabres were in the middle of an eight game losing streak, after they fired Scotty Bowman as head coach a week earlier
- James Griffin was right in the middle of his 16-year tenure as Buffalo Mayor
