    At this point I say bring it on. At least you can be outdoors in the snow. This rain. It's killing me. I was hit with a downpour while outside last night and the forecast has changed to include rain for the rest of the holiday weekend. Snowmobiling, skiing, fishing, kayaking, hiking, cooking, etc. is way better than this monsoon crap.

    The colder it is outside, the better that warm stove feels

    This was our first August without an Atlantic hurricane since 2002, (and 1977). This is an analog map of the following winters for those 2 years, courtesy of forecaster John Foust: (shows temp compared to normal for Dec Jan Feb)

    Discussion: 1. Very cold winters. 2. Probably not a good correlation. Hurricane season -vs- winter is a rather romantic notion, but no one has been able to make much connection between them.

    Please no hurricanes this year. Sandy was the worst. Multiple underwear changing that night. Snow and cold- bring it!
