At this time last year, Douglas County residents were walking around in shorts, soaking up the warm sunshine.

This year, you'd get frostbite.


The temperature difference between this year's March and the previous one is astounding.

On March 19, 2012, the temperature hit 75 degrees. On March 19, 2013, the warmest it got was a shivery 13, a temperature difference of 62 degrees.
