As of this writing, Crestview’s all-time lowest temperature was 8 degrees Fahrenheit, recorded Jan. 13 1981, Zierden said. 

Florida's all-time lowest temperature belongs to the state's capital. On Feb. 13 1899, Tallahassee recorded a low temperature of -2 degrees Fahrenheit.

"There were actually kids playing in the snow near the capital building steps," Zierden said, referring to photographs that document that day.
