Many south Mississippians believe that we miss out on the four seasons, but there is no doubt we didn't miss winter this year. Right now, the National Weather Service says our area is officially experiencing winter, with temperatures below normal this year. Harrison County's Emergency Manager, Rupert Lacy, says this winter is one for the history books. Lacy says, "This is probably going into the books, right now as the 12th worst winter we've ever had, so there are 11 others before this, so we know we can say we've had a winter." The coldest season the state experienced was the winter of 1962, with a record temp of nine degrees in Biloxi!
