I PRAY this forecast is right! I'm ALWAYS praying for above average temperatures in the winter and No SNOW - the worst four letter word there is!!!!!


I'm so sad that we will not have snow again this year! I moved here from CA and since I've been here in five years no real snow!

I want snow this year! What

I want snow this year! What is the deal with the weather?! Never cooperates!

‘Eee by gum! I sure hope someone got back Olive aboot flying lessons for her wee grandson.

The weather up here has been fair t’ middlin’

Good Job

They tell us at the top that these predictions are not location-specific, but only show trends based on recorded cycles for the various regions. Don't expect them to tell you what the weather is for your private function on any given day. But must say, for my region, the trends for October this year so far are spot-on.

The Farmers Almanac Is Making That Mistake Right Now.

The Farmers Almanac Is Making That Mistake Right Now. But People Like To Have A Little Break From The Snow So They Can Do Things. We Are Not Ready For Snow Yet. It Says The snowiest periods will be In early and mid-December and early to mid-March. And coldest periods in early and mid-December, from late December into early January, and in late January.
