Super cold, slew of snow

Super cold, slew of snow in Old Farmer's Almanac forecast
Ha, I remember too well dragging out a deer in minus 10 degree weather and the cold winter I spent in the Buffalo area years ago.
And the new fishing auger some fishing aquaintances bought.
And I bought this summer some backup gaiters, some neck gaiters, some military winter mittens, for me and my hiking buddy, looking over my "basewear". it was easy for my ol memory to get ready.
I was there.

I haven't heard about the Almanacs yet but the weather service guys that go by computers and water off Africa say the same.

Hope the heck they are wrong.
Don't mind the Cold, but you can have the Snow.

Re: Super cold, slew of snow

I'd rather have the snow and not the cold.
The last 2 hard winters have caused havoc on my landscaping....and my block walls, and some in-ground pool piping.

Re: Super cold, slew of snow

Just saw the local tv weatherman afew nights ago saying because of the extremely warm water off the west coast (el nino) our winter would likely be warmer than last year? He did say that it could still have alot of snow or rain. Also, for guys that believe in this type of stuff, there is a giant hornets nest I saw that is no more than 18" above the ground?

Re: Super cold, slew of snow

Like Asajoe mentions, when there is a large El Nino in the Pacific like they're expecting it usually means a warmer than average temperature winter. That's what I've heard the weather forecasters talking about, not a super cold winter. With an abundance of warmer moisture I'd expect typically wet snow. Not fun for shoveling.

Re: Super cold, slew of snow

You folks still have weather"men" up there....

Down this way, 95% of the weather reports are given by hot looking women. Who really cares what they say

Re: Super cold, slew of snow

IIRC, last winter's temps were above average in much of the western parts of the country and well below average in the NE?

I'd sooner have thirty days of below average winter temps, than one week of 90+ degree days in the summer.

Re: Super cold, slew of snow

I worked a job on call 24/7 - 365 weather was always crap. I was always out new years eve, holidays what ever. Now, since I'm retired, if I wake up and it's snowing I go back to bed or have a highball.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.
