I heard yesterday that due to a weak El' Nino in the Pacific, the Eastern US should expect the coldest and wettest winter in a decade. Bring it on!
I think most of us are ready.
That's not what "they" are saying here in the Mid-Atlantic states. This morning I heard a report that the Gas company has an over abundance of natural gas and with the anticipated "warm" winter everyone could expect to have a 25% reduction in their seasonal gas bill with a corresponding reduction in the electric or heating oil bill.
This is in direct conflict with the Farmer's Almanac and Chris's woolly worm. Everything being equal, I'm going to go with the Farmer's Almanac and the woolly worm. We are still at 60* night time and low 70s during the day. I expect to be holding on to my match for at least 6 weeks. I'm ready, I just have to get the weather to cooperate.
On the other hand, the weather is beautiful - this is the one time of year I don't mind being out on the bus 6 hours a day. I would be very happy if I could move to someplace other then Southern California with weather like this 365 days a year. Lisa
