2020-2021 or 2019-2020?

Ok which is it really?

I Think They'd Might Of Changed It To 2019 - 2020.

That Can't Be Right. It's Suppose To Be 2020 - 2021 Winter.


Bring on the snow . . . lots and lots of snow please!


I Hope We Get Snow This Winter. I Want Snow Days. Some People Like Snow And Some People Do Not Everyone Is Different. I Like Snow.

I Hope The Snow Comes...

I Hope The Snow Comes...

It hardly ever snows anymore in Kentucky

I have been tracking the weather for the areas of Cynthiana and Florence, looking at data for the years 1972 to present. It is disheartening to know that for every five years for 1975 to 2019, the average high and average low for the months of July to December has consistently stayed the same as the previous 5 year period, or risen slightly. The jet stream is also further north than it used to be, which is why we end up in the ice or rain line of storms much more often than we used to. The last time Kentucky consistently got good snowfall was in the 1990's.

2021 Winter Predictions

Looks like we're gonna have a white Christmas!

Let it snow, let it snow,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!!!

I Hope It Snows In 2020 - 2021. I Hope So. IDK Maybe.

I Should Snow All Winter In 2020 - 2021. I Guess People Don't Like Snow All The Time. Just Sometimes. Some People Like Mild Winters And Some People Like Bad Winters Everyone's Different.
