    The prediction we have all been waiting for has finally be released. Farmers' Almanac has published their 2017-18 winter prediction. You all in the East get ready because cold and snow is in the forecast. I have yet to receive the woolly bear report from back East and will share when I do.


    For our Monkeys in the South be prepared because it will be a soggy winter.

    Here is an article on Farmers' Almanac prediction Farmers' Almanac Says Winter 2018 Will Be Extra Awful Because Life Is Unfair Sometimes

    And if you have never purchased a Farmers' Almanac, I believe it is worth the cost.

    It certainly has been a soggy summer down here. We lost fruit trees, tomatoes, cukes, squash, melons to way too much rain. The bees left, I think they migrated to Nevada. Only thing that seems not to mind are squirrels, turtles, and weeds.

    So it's weather as usual.

    @Seacowboys is right. I have heard that the South had a wet summer. I am wondering if it will hurt the crop production/harvest. I always watch these predictions because it is not just making sure you have a winter coat but also my local produce section depends on the weather being normal.

    Been a wet summer here in North Florida. Good thing is, our water table is back up from our drought of a few years back.

    Well I may finally get to use my wood stove I purchased. It just never got quite cold enough to use. It got cold but not for any real extended periods of time.

    Nice to actually HAVE weather, instead of "Climate Change"......

    When first moved to Nevada some years ago, I asked a longtime resident why it was so windy.
    He told me that it was because California blows and Utah sucks.

    Drier than normal for a change here in this part of the PNW, but like we always say...Wait a minute. I've even had to water my landscaping, something I haven't had to do for a good 6 years.

    I hope this is correct as we got way too much snow last year so 'Drier that normal' suites me fine.
