Just finished reading the 2018 FA. There really are some good articles in there. Too bad it only comes out once a year.

Yup, the articles are great every year, I use the gardening tips, great recipes , planting tips. My wife loves her parsley, so there was a lot of interesting stuff on that this year etc etc (I sound like an old woman ... doh!)

The overall seasonal trends are about right every year... for down here generally mild and wet for 2017-2018 winter... they get the seasonal forecast as right as the regular weather dudes and dudettes on TV.

I think they claim 80% accuracy, which is pretty good considering how far in advance they are forecasting.

Talking Re: 2017 - 2018 Winter Storms

not sure I read this in the almanac, but no wonder I feel lousy today:

Dec. 21 will be the worst day of 2017, astrologers say

This year, the winter solstice will take place on Thursday, Dec. 21 for the Northern Hemisphere Time





The winter solstice ? also known as Yule, Midwinter, the Shortest Day of the Year and the Longest Night ? occurs at 11:28 a.m. ET Thursday.
But this short, little day with the great many names also may be the worst day of the year, according to astrologers. The reason? Saturn.
Apparently, the sun will appear to pass in front of the constellation Capricorn hours after Saturn does likewise. This will cause both of these orbs to line up for the first time time since 1664, according to London astrologer Neil Spencer, who writes for The (London) Observer but first wrote about the alignment on his blog.
He insists that starting something new on this day is ?ill advised? and will have long-term consequences. And anything you try to do Thursday will be more difficult than usual, take more time and be more frustrating.

next up coming late tomorrow into Thursday morning, not sure about the totals (actual track will vary), but something will hit along the coast for sure.

could be a big snow right along the coast... it's looking like a sharper gradient so that inland will get lower amounts.

Last run gave the coast 5"+ ... so, we'll see

If it makes you feel any better northern Florida had sleet and freezing rain this morning. Does anyone know if Barnegat bay or the Toms River is frozen over? I remember a few winters where there were ice boats on the river in Island Heights. Really cool to watch.
