    Hope they are correct. I would love to see a good old Minnesota winter with lots of snow. Took a new job with a city and I am itching to get out in the new macks and see how well they work in snow.

    they were dead nuts on here last year.
    NWS was saying average winter or light, farmer's almanac said big heavy winter.

    Was 6th snowiest winter EVER in Longmont.

    FA wins that round.

    I had read at one time, somewhere in the 80% range.

    Look for the wooley worms crawling around in your area. They will tell you what the winter will be like. If they are black or dark brown like they are here it will be a good winter for SNOW biz. Darker they are, the better. Also divide them into 3 segments, front, middle, rear, equals early, middle, late winter. Dead on here last year as they are about 95% of time in last 20 years. Weathermen haven't a clue.

    Where are you located? Last year was a great year for us. That first snow we got was kinda crazy! We got 15" here in Des Moines. My guess is going to be late november. Pry will be mowing the day before it snows on some of my accounts!
