    el nino

    Right now theres a lot of uncertainty about how this el nino is going to behave, the only info Ive heard is winter may start mild, but then after the new year it may get cranking. Ill have more details in the next few months. I'm just glad I have not more seasonal contracts.

    Facebook.......Pfftttt Punk stuff.......:waving:

    The NTAC's can't forecast two days out on a good day........;)

    El Nino or El Barto who cares, winters coming, we'll piss and moan about not getting snow then piss and moan about it never stopping. Finally we'll piss and moan about late pays and how money is tight. The season will be a repeat of countless others..........Thumbs Up

    Last winter was rumored to be the worst also. It was a big BUST.

    It was great in your area. Lake effect helps. New York and eastern areas great also. I think I went out 6 times. This year I hope will be better

    I would be jumping up and down if only went out 6 times. I have mostly seasonal accounts.

    :laughing:
    Stock up on salt.
    That rain down south in ill will freez after the front passes.

    The polar vortex:laughing: what ever that is....

    The northern jet stream will stay to the north for the most part when any moisture is in the regen.

    I rember winters where it raind 7 out of 10 events...

    The Polar Vortex
    http://www.arctic.noaa.gov/detect/climate-strat.shtml

    Just because it became a main stream buzz word doesn't mean it always wasn't a scientific term...I only say this because you :laughing: after it like it was some made up thing...

    However a lot of people (universities, climatologists, etc) are favoring a Strong El Nino through the winter with even a Super El Nino in the early fall....Much like back in 97-98 and 82-83...However in 97-98 we didn't have this stubborn Polar Vortex shift that has been hanging around the past couple years...

    See how it effects the forecast temps
    [​IMG]
    That's actually predicting a colder winter than last year

    Interesting:

    HAHA Nice Buff

    In all seriousness I wonder if some of us should be planning on using more de-icer than usual, in case it is a more rainy winter. Though if it stays colder like the models are speculating (key word) I guess it could be more pushes...Oh the joy
