The latest offerings from the long-range forecasters have the local neck of the woods above normal for temps, and with average precipitation for the coming winter.
This is what I always prefer to hear: “It will snow every day from December 1 to March 1, with average temperatures around 30 degrees, night time lows around 25. And hardly any wind.”
That might be a bit much. How about a nor’easter every ten days? With some time for pond skating along the way. Too much to ask?
As long as winter is a season we must deal with, we might as well be able to enjoy it somehow.
