In 2012, the weather was like a verse from “Oh, Susannah”: It rained all May, June and July; the weather, it was dry. After an unforeseen mild winter, followed by a March that brought warmth of historic intensity and duration, drought intensified, but many farmers’ harvested record crops. Despite a warm summer, few damaging tornadoes appeared. October wildfires were doused by a record early snowfall. And meteorological winter brought a sun so hot we froze to death (and snow).
