The Farmer’s Almanac Says Sedalia’s Winter Will Be Snowy
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!
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.
