When October Snows
Posted 11/3/2011 11:22:00 AM

What is it with the weather? Snow in October! While seeing a flake or two may not be that unusual this time of year, a full fledged snow storm with major accumulation seems to be! So it made me wonder what the coming winter would bring. We had a lot of nasty snow storms last winter, Do we really want to go through that again?

 

Looks like we may have no choice. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, we're gearing up for a winter of near normal temperatures. However, they are predicting above normal snowfall! NO! The National Weather Service says we have a moderate La Nina on the way, and according to meteorologists, that translates into cold and snow. Great. Looks like there's no getting out of it.

 

I know what you’re thinking. Nancy, it's winter and you live in New England, get over it. You're right, I should expect cold and snow. But wouldn't it be nice to take a little break from the extremes? I hear that after this weekend, the following weeks will bring warmer than normal temperatures. Hey, I'll take what I can get. And it'll be a good time to get stuff done, like buying some new snow shovels for the winter.
