I'd just like to come in with a shred of good news. I cover agriculture for my job and at a trade show last week I attended a presentation by the top business weather forecasting firm. They are saying that it's going to be a mild beginning and end to the season, but that late December through February is going to be very intense with a lot of storm activity coming to the Rockies and elsewhere. Here's hoping they're right. Won't help me much, I've already got a trip booked to Summit County Dec. 26-Jan. 2, but I'm hoping I can at least catch the beginning of the turnaround in weather.
