    Heh...told ya I was fueling the fire ;)

    This link give FHW's (busted) 2011 outlook. They weren't much more wrong than most others:

    One thing to note: they seem to have hit TX and the southwest pretty close. And this was after one of the coldest winters in that region (2009-10). Especially deep into Mexico.
    But the rest of the map is about as wrong as it can be.

    I predict that it will slowly get colder the next 5 months with some snow and rain and then it will slowly warm back up with more snow and rain.==c

    Farmer's Almanac - Narrow orange band in the middle of the woolly bear caterpillar warns of heavy snow; fat and fuzzy caterpillars presage bitter cold.

    From what I saw yesterday next to the brook (fat and fuzzy caterpillars) it will be a bitter cold winter for us. Never had the camera but did find two nice holes over 3.5 feet deep which cooled us off nice.
