I don't know all the ins and outs of meteorology.  I can barely predict  my own behavior, much less what the weather will do. But I was thinking about it the other day, and I decided to consult the folks that maybe Do know what they're doing. Farmer's Almanac, here I come!  Did you know they have a secret long range weather prediction formula they've been using since 1792 that they keep locked up in a secret black box in New Hampshire?  I didn't, but I do now!

Anyway, according to their predictions, it looks like we're gonna have more chances of having a white winter than anything else.

Winter will be milder than normal, with above-normal precipitation. The coldest periods will be in mid- and late December and early January. Snowfall will be below normal in the north and above normal in central and southern areas, with the snowiest periods in late November, mid-December, early January, and mid-March. 

Well, crap.  But then I thought, wait.  Maybe I should consult the big time sciency weather guys and see what they say!

NOAA

Well that didn't help.  Equal chances?! What the heckin heck!

I guess it's just our lot in life in West Central Missouri.  Guess.   Then wait five minutes, and see what happens.  I'm all for a cool winter (I hate the heat of the summertime) but I'm not a fan of the disruption snow brings.  I guess I'll just have to treasure my Autumn and live in denial of the rest.

Snowingly yours,
