    In a typical March, particularly in the nation's northern tier, you may see, perhaps, one or perhaps two days of record warmth before a sharp cold front brings that spring tease to a screeching halt. Not so in March 2012.

    International Falls, Minn., self-promoted as the "Icebox of the Nation", tied or broke daily record highs 12 of 13 days from Mar. 10-22. This includes a 79-degree reading on March 18, which was the warmest day ever recorded during March in International Falls.

    Thursday, March 22, Detroit, Mich., reached 86 degrees, setting an all-time record high for the month of March.

    Here's the way the media hypes the weather: You get a warm spell and it's all the same weather system but every city gets to count their own record. In other words instead of setting one record for a hot day we get a thousand cities with their own records so it's a thousand times one record hot day. Anyway, evidence indicates that the world is older than Jim Cantore and the Weather Channel records.

    rdean this is about your education level, as a matter of fact it might be a little too advanced for you.

    The "Year without a Summer"
    In 1816, Savannah, Georgia, celebrated the 4th of July with a high temperature of 46°F! Because it was so cold across the eastern U.S., crops were ruined as the growing season was shortened. Snow even fell in June, the heaviest in New England between June 6th and 11th, creating snow drifts 18 to 20 inches in parts of Vermont.
