The mistaken groundhog
Mother Nature must not have listened to Punxsutawney Phil, the Pennsylvania-based groundhog, when he predicted on Feb. 2 that spring would be early this year.
WQAD News Channel 8 meteorologist James Zahara said it’s been one of the coldest Marches on record, especially hard in comparison since last March was one of the warmest Marches on record.
“It didn’t seem that long ago when temperatures in March 2012 exceeded 60 degrees or better 21 times in the one month,” Zahara said. “What’s even more amazing is that on 13 of those days, the temperature reached 70 degrees or better, with six of those days topping out at 80 degrees or warmer! Wow!”
