    hoping to cool some of you down as well as share a bit of hope.
    here's a link to see the maps, but overall this winter looks to be a little colder than normal, a little/lot wetter than normal except for a good portion stretching from Montana to Mexico, and more snow than normal. Maybe the water table will be back where it belongs next spring if this is true! Anyone else counting down til winter??

    Nooo. I hate winter or any kind of cold weather. I am a summer person no matter how hot is gets. I also hate my power bill in the winter, had one month last winter it was 1,200.00 because it takes so much to get me warm.

    well I have an easy solution, make more quilts, or one just for you. My avatar is the one I just made for my bed to go on top of the 10 blankets from last year. Fatt batt and fleece backing. very warm which I didn't like while sewing it together to flip it.

    What is the EC on the map(s)? I'm right around that area.

    There's a local radio station who has a contest on when you think the recorded temperature will be below 100.

    I have not a clue what the "ec" means. I'm more in the wet, snowy and COLD area. But I guess I'll take whatever they give me! Will be looking for more snow predicting signs. Did you know that high wasp nests mean a harsh winter?? Not sure how I feel about that as my parents plow snow in the winter...

    I really LOVE the snow and dont mind driving in it. But I hate the ice and super cold! So if could snow at about 50 degrees I would be really happy!! LOL
    I went to visit a GF in AZ between Christmas and New years a while back and we were headed to the Grand Canyon. We got caought in a snow storm and even the tow trucks were getting stuck! LOL I ended up driving (her car NOT the tow trucks :)) and thought it was pretty neat!!!!

    I am really enjoying the sun on my skin.. I am not able to get out in the winter and really not looking forward to winter at all....maybe I should go south like other snow birds... :)

    I am voting for a long autumn and a short winter. I do not like this hot humid weather.

    no it's not just you. I blame global warming and all we're doing to make it worse.

    But I prefer winter over summer. I'd take shoveling snow over sweating any day. At least once the snow's shoveled, I can curl up under a quilt to get warm!
