    One silver lining in this forecast is that it's great for maple syrup production....Something very important for the local economy where I live as my county is the biggest producer of maple syrup in New York State. Given we had a horrible year last year with the very early warm weather, we need a better than average year this year. If the forecast you posted holds true for my area, it will greatly benefit the large and small local producers.

    The North Atlantic Oscillation is negative this winter, resulting in the weather situation shown on the illustration below.

    Translation:
    jetstrøm = jetstream
    kold & sne = cold & snow
    varm & mindre havis = warm & less sea ice
    kold & tør = cold & dry
    varm & fugtig = warm & humid
    kold & mere havis = cold & more sea ice

    Here in Denmark we have had the coldest march in 71 years!! with a lot of snow. Some houses have been almost buried in snow. See photo.

    Yes, my point exactly. You didn't really think I was blaming this on the trumped up global warming hoax did you? If you did, I have some carbon credits I'd be happy to sell you in exchange for some pellets.

    Now you all know why you keep a few extras around, nature doesn't care about your planning, those forecasts, or climate models.

    This was common back in the 80's and 90's here. I have been out in the snow in March digging out dead wood out of the snow to try to dry it by the wood stove. In the last ten years there was a year when I burned into May.

    Got spoiled the last four or five years.
