I'm not sure I believe those totals, but we'll see the later runs today.

Hey Rob, ordered one of those farmers almanacs for 2018. Have you ever read them? Curious to see if there's any merit to it or is it just throwing darts

Why would you need an Almanac?!?! I'll predict your weather: Sunny and hot, with a brief shower or two this week. Use sunscreen.

How much did you get for your snow shovel when you left?

Meteorologists don't put much stock in the farmers almanac, but I have purchased it the past few years and general trends are close enough, not so much specifics. I love the articles and gardening info!

Don't know if this is a good place to post this, but it is relevant.

It's late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in South Dakota asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.

Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, 'Is the coming winter going to be cold?'

'It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,' the meteorologist at the weather service responded.

So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared.

A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. 'Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?'

'Yes,' the man at National Weather Service again replied, 'it's going to be a very cold winter.'

The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.

Two weeks later, the chief called the National Weather Service again. 'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?'

'Absolutely,' the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen.'

'How can you be so sure?' the chief asked.

The weatherman replied, 'The Indians are collecting a shitload of firewood'

Long term weather patterns do have a science, just like we moved from the warm pattern to the cooler pattern for now. Plus FA and meteorologists use high level trends but as we know, any detailed forecast is just a crapshoot out more than a week

Ha Ha funny stuff Don. Actually we're going to have some lows in the 40's this week.
I know it sounds wimpy but after 8 straight months of heat and humidity it really does feel cold. Sucks if that's the one week someone decides to fly south and get away from the cold.

Going over my winter notes Kroc if the front comes thru , but looks like is going to warm up for the weeks i’m down . Weedon , Legion Flats are a few that do me good when it’s cold . Best part ....the locals are no where to be found .
