    I wish that "WET" on the west coast was a little further south.

    Well heck, I'm right on the west edge of that Eastern above average snowfall pod.
    In fact, I'm right on the freakin' line! Now what do I prep for?
    Do I get new snowshoes? Wool under shirts? Battery operated huevo warmers?
    Or do I go with Hawiian shirts, flip flops, and a new Speedo ball bag?
    I need to know these things. More info!

    Yeah! right, they are just like we are, just wait and see what it does, cause they can't predict the weather for the next 2 days, much less for next winter.

    This shows you how much faith I have in weather people.
    It's the only job I know of that people are paid to be wrong every single day.

    I too have very little faith in the weather people. Here in the L.A. area, several years ago, I watched the weather on all three main news channels, ABC,NBC and CBS. One said it will rain the next day, another said it may rain and the last said no way was it going to rain. It's much more accurate to just get yourself a weather rock.

    Accu weather can't tell me what the weather is doing right now!!
    It just said we are getting rain but the sun is coming up and no rain!
    So I don't believe they can tell me what it is going to be like this winter.

    I'll take normal snowfall, thanks. But I won't count on the forecast.

    The amounts of snow and the temperature depend on the size of a developing El Niño, characterized by unusually warm temperatures in the Pacific Ocean along the equator just off the coast of South America, affecting weather around the world, according to the almanac’s weather predictor, William O’Toole.

    “I’d probably hedge my bets and say if the El Niño is weak to moderate, there could be snow in the range of 50 or more inches,” O’Toole said. “If it dries out, then there will be less snow and the winter will be drier, but if it is strong, then the winter will be wet and warm.”

    O’Toole added that there is a 50-50 chance of the El Niño being weak to moderate, and that it is possible for this winter to be similar to that of 2009-10, during which more than 80 inches of snow fell on some parts of the region.

    We had a little snow on summit other day, but it didn't last. Moose haven't gathered up their cows yet, had a few frosts, windy, leaves coming off the trees; winter pretty quick here in Ak. It still gets up in lower 60s on sunny days though. Only thing I believe is it will be minus 65 off and on come January and I'll start seeing that big old sun come creaping along the mnt tops come february.
