In 2012 Chuckles VII did not see her shadow and predicted an early spring. Her prediction was right on target. During the month of February the total amount of precipitation was 1.58 inches which is down 1.21 inches from the normal. The average temperature was 40.9 degrees, which is up 5.9 degrees from the normal average. This photo was taken of Molly when she made her first debut as Chuckles in 2009.
