The Groundhog Was So Very Wrong!
Back on February 2nd, a little groundhog you may have heard of was pulled from a hole in the ground in Pennsylvania and asked to predict when spring would arrive. Boy was he wrong.
Not only was this NOT a long winter in our area, but spring -- which arrived overnight -- came earlier than it has in more than 100 years, according to scientists and weather experts. (Space.com)
And the news gets even better -- because we're also in for a long summer!
Turns out the four seasons are not actually the same in duration. This summer will be the longest season of the year with 93.7 days. It's followed by spring at 92.8 days, fall at 90 days, and winter at only 89 days this year!
