    Winter doesn't necessarily snow though. It could be lots of cold. But, the winter trend here is snow.

    LET IT SNOW!!!!!!!

    However, the problem I just read is that we are changing to a La Nina winter weather pattern. Books out on whether it will become entrenched or not, hopefully not. NWS forecasters have mentioned it & Gary Gray discusses it at his site too.

    Oh no BRL; you're beginning to sound like a forecaster. Soon you'll be venturing out here to the Plains in conquest of severe weather.

    BTW: Every outlook we had here in IA for precipitation, temperatures, etc. by our state climatologist and the NWS were wrong; go figure.
    The MRF is showing a pretty potent system hitting you guys next week.

    I've found that no matter what Ol Phil says, there is always 6 more weeks of winter left.

    If Old Phil does not see his shadow, we will have a month and 1/2 of winter left.

    There's six weeks of winter left regardless what the little rodent saw. That's so goofy.

    Our 2 Canadian ground hogs only predicted 2 weeeks more weeks of winter, Whyerton Willy & Shubenacadie Sam. But I just counted my hours and I spend 42 hours plowing since Feb 1. I hope our's are right. Deere John You live closer to Willy What do you think?
