    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.

    I'm going to hold my opinion on the Farmer's Almanac until after I see what the acorns are like when they fall here in Texas.

    Here in central Texas, we rarely get snow. Having grown up in New England, I miss the snow - hate the summers here. I would love a "slap in the face".

    Hi Cleveland Gal,
    You don't think we'll get any snow in late Sept do you? We're going to be visiting family in Euclid until 1st week in Oct. Please, please, please no snow!
