    What have you heard for this winter? I have heard actually more people telling me a colder/snowier winter. I've seen two things (accuweather and noaa) that say mild, but a lot more with the cold and snowy because of the mild summer.

    What have you heard?

    I've "heard" mild temps and average snowfall. When May is here I'll give you a full report of what "actually" happened. Like you, I would like to know too, but we both know that sigh of relief ain't going to happen.

    The farmers almanac says a bad winter but who knows. NOAA said that the west was going to be dry this year but they're already way off!! Check this out!!

    Meteorologist and business management have degrees to get their pay but regular people use common sense. Look to the sky, feel the temp and listen to wind that should tell you.

    Meteorologists are capitalist fascists just like the government. :nod:
    They're all crooks.

    Another thing is that I've noticed that the silver maple's are dropping their leaves earlier this year.......usually they don't start dropping for another two weeks.....maybe another sign? :redbounce

    I noticed here in Canada that the rabbits changed colours early this year, which is another good sign :)

    I've also noticed the silver maples are dropping early about 10 days early around here. I'll tell you next year if it's actually a good sign or bad sign! ;)
