    the worst part is this is just a tease. usually the snow start to melt and i think, cool soon spring will be here then summer. but noo, winter isnt half over yet and we have 3 months or so of cold left and hopefully some snow.

    Many of us predicted this weather for this season. We were due for this after last year's weather. Check the Farmer's Almanac-maybe it'll get better in Feb.....?

    Here in connecticut the last four out of five years have been way above average. You can't expect every year to be that way. Though this year I have already 6 or 7 times plowing and 9 salt runs so can not really complain. We were spoiled by the last five years and you can't win them all. You have to just average your years out. Normally around my parts we get 10 to 15 snow plows a year tops. Last year we had 21, so cant complain much really.

    The good news is

    Elmo1537, I think your right. With this continuosly wet weather pattern, when it does finally get cold we are going to get hammered. I predect that in a couple weeks we will all be busy as a one legged man in a but kickin contest.:redbounce

    Hopefully. The precipitation is there, but the temperatures are not. 40-50 degrees is not going to cut it.
