It’s a bit early for this…

March 18, 2012

Thermometer says it’s over eighty degrees f out there. Calendar says it’s only 18 March. Out of curiosity I looked up the high temps for this date in 10-year-intervals, going back to WWII…

High temps for Bloomington, IL 18 March at 10-year-intervals:

2012 82
2002 45
1992 34
1982 50
1972 56
1962 56
1952 53
1942 53
Source: Wolfram Alpha. 1942-72 are for “Center of Illinois” (which is right where we are) and ’82-2012 are for Bloomington. 1992 seems a bit of an anomaly, doesn’t it? Anyone remember what happened in 1991?

    Mount St. Helens was in May 1980. Same week as my first son came home from the hospital.

    Mt Pinatubo blew in 1991, noticeably cooling the Earth’s climate for the next two years.
