Hail, old October, bright and chill,
First freedman from the summer sun!
Spice high the bowl, and drink your fill!
Thank heaven, at last the summer's done

Ski and Snow Forecast 2020 From The Old Farmer’s Almanac
The Ski and Snow Forecast for winter 2019–2020 is out from The Old Farmer’s Almanac! Sharpen your edges, skiers, snowboarders, and snow lovers: The Almanac Predicts a Pow Pow (Powder–Packed) Winter! Get the summary plus your regional outlook—from the Northeast to the Rocky Mountains and more! Snow and Ski Forecast General Summary For the United States, The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting no fewer than seven snowstorms this winter! While many places that usually get snow will begin to see flakes flying in mid-November, the most serious accumulations will hold off until the holidays. Many areas will enjoy a white Christmas, but it’s the new year that will bring cheers: The blizzard of snowstorms predicted by the Almanac are expected to sweep across the country, from the Rockies to New England, beginning on January 1 or in the days following. Fresh barrages of snow will continue throughout the season—and beyond. At least three snowstorms are predicted in late March and April. Spring skiing in 2020 may be the best ever!
