Just found this....2014 Long Range Winter Forecast | Farmers' Almanac

Excerpt (I've taken the liberty to bold where appropriate):
Quote:
After the unusually warm and snowless winter of 2011–2012, many people questioned if winter could make a comeback. Well it did. Last winter was cold and especially snowy.

So, what’s in store for this winter? The “Days of Shivery” are back! 
For 2013–2014, we are forecasting a winter that will experience below average temperatures for about two-thirds of the nation. A large area of below-normal temperatures will predominate from roughly east of the Continental Divide to the Appalachians, north and east through New England. Coldest temperatures will be over the Northern Plains on east into the Great Lakes. Only for the Far West and the Southeast will there be a semblance of winter temperatures averaging close to normal, but only a few areas will enjoy many days where temperatures will average above normal.

Precipitation-wise, the Southern Plains, Midwest, and Southeast will see above-normal conditions, while the rest of the country will average near normal. With a combination of below-normal temperatures and above-normal precipitation the stage will be set for the Midwest, Great Lakes, and Central and Northern New England to receive lots of snow. Farther south, where the thermometer will be vacillating above or below the freezing mark, Southern New England, Southeast New York, New Jersey, and down through the Mid-Atlantic region will be seeing either copious rains and/or snows.

And yet, the Pacific Northwest (or is it “northwet?”) where indeed wet weather is almost a given during the winter months, the overall winter season could average out drier than normal.

Significant snowfalls are forecast for parts of every zone.
Also if you click on that link and look at the map below the forecast, you will see our region in the "Biting Cold & Snowy" category. Yea baby!

I think its funny, auto claims adjusters (ME) snowplow operators, and snowboarders/skiers all wish for and welcome the cold temps and snow!!


When does the Almanac say we are getting our first blizzard of the season?

Don't know didn't check into that. I don't put a lot of trust on forecasts like these anyways; I only posted it because I am desperately hoping for snow.

They can't get the forecast right for the week, so how I am supposed to believe the Farmer's Almanac? This week there is a possibility of snow though.

The thing Hawk has working against them on early openings; it just doesn't snow much here in Lansing. I know that sounds strange but it just doesn't. Especially early season. So they need to make all of theirs when the temps stay low consistently.

The new Bonfire pants that I bought on clearance arrived today, and I must say the build quality and comfort completely blow my old Burtons out of the water. I paid 50 bucks for these, but after trying them on and handling them, I might have been willing to pay twice that. Good purchase.
