I know, right? It's also never often that we have a 1' snowstorm already behind us by turkey day either .....

Strange season so far. Tornados in MA in June, a hurricane that dropped 4" of rain in August, a tropical storm that dumped 5"+ in September, and a freak October snowstorm that dumped 14" on my town. :shock:

After all that I'll place my bets on a snowless & warm winter. :lol:

That'll surely be nice on my coal use. And I'm sure we can all agree, that ain't bad. That's right, I said I'm sure we can ALL agree. :clap: toothy

You got my vote for a mild winter Fred, even as a less old man that did a bit of skiing I would always rather let the ski's sit & get along without much snow, besides that it would help everyone money wise if it stays a bit warmer.

I moved to Saranac Lake in December 1989 and that was the coldest December on record. Except for a couple hours towards the end of the month, the temperature never went above 0*F for the whole month. Thankfully I was just out of the military, single and didn't have much. All my belongings fit in my Jetta.....those were the days, lol. So if global warming does exist (which I'm not convinced of), then where is the down side?

I don't think it will be as bad as last year, but; we still will have some cold snaps. Most of the bitter cold will stay in the mid west.

You learn a lot while you are stuck in limbo. The girly men ran when I started throwing lumps of stove coal at them, so I got away.
