[Weather]Crazy weather poll.

So, how bad is it going to be this year?

Poll
This winter will be

Colder and snowier than normal

normal temps but enough snow to bury my house 10 feet over

cold but not much snow

mild and a lot of snow

warmer and sunnier than normal - Massachusetts - the new sunshine state!!


Votes:13




And remember to stock up on Samuel Adams and lots of fish if it does get cold.

When it comes to storms and snow I'm a pessimist. Even though a lot of Massachusetts had record snows last year, at my house in centerville we had below average snow reaching 23.5 inches last year. I voted cold but not much snow:)

I went full-tilt pessimist with Colder and snowier.

It never snows on Cape Cod!

I went with 'cold but not much snow.' After last year I don't think I could take much more snow.

I remember up here have a 'cold' but less snow winter. I think we had a snow in January and that was it until March, but the snow itself lasted until March because it never got above freezing that whole time. It was still good for the ski resorts as they can make their own snow, and it needs to be cold for that.

I'm hoping for "Cold not much snow" but I bought a brand new Arien's snow blower recently in prep for winter. I'd like to test it out a few times this year but other then that a warmer winter would be fine by me. Anything to save on the heating oil costs!

I went with warmer and sunnier than normal. It is a clear case of wishful thinking. I do a 4 mile power walk every day and last winter was a challenge I don't want to repeat. I don't mind the cold, but the snowbanks make walking the roads a little dangerous.

I want to trade my lawn mower, rakes and snow shovels in for a multi-purpose tool.

Do you know how hard it is to get a surplus flame-thrower?

I'll keep my chain saw "Bob".

Will you settle for a propane flamethrower?

What does the guy with the bear fat in jars say about the weather? I remeber a story from years ago about a guy that had jars of bear fat and he acurately predicted the weather with them. Better than the weatherman did too.

I suspect it's going to be cold with little snow as we've had lots of rain this fall. I voted for colder and snowier than normal but don't know if that will happen.

This will replace your rakes and shovels.

Yesterday on the way home from work they said the prediction is the same winter this year as last year.

From today's CC Times:
Vague is in vogue with NOAA weather prognosticators, who issued the following winter outlook for the Northeast on Thursday: "equal chances for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and precipitation."

I like a good story...

ROTFLMAO

Most honest report I've seen yet. Playing it kind of safe though.

The dreaded "S" word in the forecast for the first time this season.
It won't amount to anything since the ground is still warm. But non-the-less, a reminder of what is to come.
