    I'm running around my house without a shirt on. It's 72F outside. It will be in the 50s and 60s all week.

    Same here in WNY but it's only 50's and 60's, but you don't have to shovel sunshine.

    84 yesterday, about the same today. Sunny and clear.

    4-5 years ago we had a little ice storm on Thanksgiving.

    I'm not a believer in man made climate change as much as I am in man made calendar does not control nature. I'm sure it will be rainy and cold here soon to satisfy the complainers.

    I am not complaining about it at all. I have used about 25% less wood to heat my house so far than I usually do.

    Dandelions are popping up in our yard in Western, PA.

    However, this is what is was like just before the GREAT BLIZZARD of 1888.

    That's the day the world is supposed to end, so I guess we won't see a winter this year.

    Winter doesn't start for about 3 more weeks. Enjoy the fall while it's still here.

    I am loving it. I wore long johns only a couple days (when I knew I would be out in wind for hrs)
    We do need moisture. Then again it takes @ 10" of normal snow to make 1" of rain. (and most snow water runs off) So if we get a mild rain (as forcast) after 3 days of +33 degree weather.....

    Well technically winter starts on Dec 21 at 11:12 hours UTC. However, I'm not sure if the Mayans told us exactly what time on Dec 21 the world will end. But in any event, guess it will be a short winter if there even is one.

    I am praying the world will end on Dec 21, it will save us all a lot of BS in the long run.

    So, you'd leave the world to those danged spotted owls and snail darters?

    You do know that it is a conspiracy between those two to get rid of us. Every time a tree is hugged, they laugh.

    I predict that if we survive Dec 21, the globe will start to warm about 3 months later.
