Wouldn't hurt my feelings either. I like a winter where every on has a good year.
Personally, I dont get wrapped up in predictions, and just take it as it comes. Always something ggod going on. As long as it isnt a total dry year, ther is usulaly something to be found somewhere.
Looked. Back at some previous seasons and found that ealry october has been the norm. Great pow openers at muir, heliotrope, ruth... although there is no road to helitrope, we did the. Skyline area. On baker last october. So, maybe only a little more then two momths now!
