    It's the end of a hot and dry summer....so I thought I'd cool us off with a winter forecast---
    According to the new issue of Farmers Almanac for USA---

    If you live in New England---"you'll get a cold slap in the face".

    Upper Midwest and Great Lakes area---"are expected to get the piles of snow that'll be lacking elsewhere."

    Rest of USA---"colder than normal but overall a kinder and gentler winter than last year."

    All I can say is that I'm heading back to Vermont!

    :mrgreen: We only go for foliage visits in the Fall and to do a little genealogy and meet up with some very shirt tail relatives in the little town of Jeffersonville. Anybody on here from that neck of the woods who could give me a heads up on the upcoming fall colors?

    I am all for a kinder gentler winter. Only reason it is one of my favorite times of the years I do not do outside in the winter so have more quilting time.

    Yup, read that myself in today's newspaper. Am looking forward to the cold slap; but hope it doesn't last long. Paper said the other day, we have had the warmest Maine summer in over 100 yrs. Just not normal for us.
