They say that Mother Nature is unpredictable. It's 100% fact. The seasons each bring their own unique style with them when they arrive. Some turn out better, some turn out worse. Last year, Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota got nailed with a lot of below zero temperatures. I was so happy, my smile had to be surgically removed.
Since last winter "ended" much later than normal, the spring and summer had a lot of below average weather. Fall, however, was a roller coaster of above and below average weather. So where does this leave winter?
A lot of people that I have talked to predicted that the winter will be above average. I am predicting the winter will be worse than last winter. But so far, the temperatures have gone both ways. All I am really hoping for is a white Christmas. It isn't the same without everyone's least favorite (and my personal favorite) terrain: snow and cold.
While Winter doesn't start for another two weeks, I'm placing my money (I don't gamble in real life) on a sub zero winter. If it gets to be warmer than normal, I'll be an unhappy person. Winter isn't about temperatures above 32 degrees, it's about temperatures 32 degrees and below.
