    What do you guys think? Every time I make a prediction like THE JETS are going to win, I am always wrong.... Am I wrong this time that its gonna be a cold one?

    Been one of the nicest spring/summers we have had in a long time, so I'm sure we are in for it this winter.

    Your prediction for the Jets however will not come true for quite some time.

    My guess for Long Island is average temps for winter. 3-5 snow storms. Maybe one major dump of snow. I know lame answer, but really I think we're going to have a mostly average winter. I have absolutely no credentials to back this.

    I have a hard time believing any long range forecast, just hope Winter doesn't last as long as it did last year.

    Never lived a winter season i didnt enjoy. Bring it on in any shape or size.

    Although I prefer below average temps to freeze all the lakes and swamps, and plenty of snow on the trails for XC skiing.

    You heat with wood... why are you worried about what kind of winter it will be? ;lol

    Bad weather does slow down the wood processing, tho. <>

    I hope so, and lots of snow to shut things down for a few months.

    Predicting long term weather is like trying to spot the next bubble in a boiling pot. In the end the JET stream always wins.

    It hasn't rained here in WA for nearly 30 days. Love it. We expect a dark, wet, and long winter and we always get it.

    We're at day 33 here and we still have the whole dry month of August to go. I'm starting to see the stress in some trees. Many are already turning color and the fire danger is getting very high.

    Below normal temps in the east, lots & lots of snow, looks like we'll be in for some real bad blizzards, start stocking up on the extra food!

    Buy that extra special person in your life a good strong shovel.

    I really do think in our area ( foothills of the Dacks) were in for that old fashion winter. The first or second year we lived there my neighbor had seen me plowing the driveway, he called me to tell me that I better push the snow back much deeper into the woods, we had that old fashion winter that year.

    I think this year we'll have more shots of that Artic air than we did last year, (New England area too) we have a chit load of Sugar Maple & Beech ready.

    We need a good old fashion winter, it will help out the busineses that are selling or repairing sleds.

    Any predictions more than a couple weeks out are a stretch. And NOAA has gotten it wrong before. Best of luck with the sled biz. Maybe broaden the service just in case. Canoe repair?

    I think you're going to want to get at least a face cord of that stacked up.

    I can always tell you what sort of winter we have had . . . in March.

    As for a prediction . . . I predict it getting cooler, maybe some days with snow and come Spring time some days with warmth.

    I figure it is what it is . . . no sense getting all wound up about it.
