There are no jinx's for this winter, it's in the bag. It will be in the Top 15 for total snowfall.

It's so bad, we mock winter with our deliberate and obvious jinx attempts. By telling winter it will produce, obviously knowing we're jinxing it, winter will call our bluff and we'll get slammed, purely out of spite. We'll get dumped on this winter.

Personally Iím preparing for a lot of 33* cold rains. Also, letís keep this in mind...we are long overdue for a major ice event. Iím thinking this is the year for that.

I'm prepared for some of you to reminisce in the Great Winter of 1984-85 and make comparisons to it by saying "x" weather event in October is how January 1985's pattern all got started...

84-85 was an awesome winter even for the Mississippi Delta when I lived there.

84-85 is the benchmark for winter weather for our area for those old enough to have experienced that winter.  If it wasn't for 84-85, we might think last year was a good winter.  So, it's a blessing and a curse.

84-85 was a weak to mod LaNina so itís not an analog.

Ukmet looks cold and stormy for this winter from its release today. American models CFS is a blowtorch.

At least it's only the American models calling for a torch.  I may be a red-blooded American, but I'll pull for the UK on this one.  Or the Euro, or the Japanese.

33 and rain? Heck, try 27 and rain. I'll never get over that storm. 27 degrees and pouring rain for what felt like hours.  ::sick::

The Old Man Winter will do what he wants, we have no say in it, so we might as well have a little fun with it.

76-77,77-78 and 84-85 were awesome here. I don't know which was worse. We missed the entire month of school in Jan 77 and snow covered the ground from the 4th of Jan until the first of Feb. The roads were also covered as big time cold and another snow every 4-5 days the entire month was like clockwork. We had anywhere from 5-10 inches of snow on the ground virtually the entire month. 77-78 was more spread out but we had several big snows and missed a bunch of days. Including 2 different snows that put us out a week at a time plus at least 2 more snows where we missed a couple of days each time. 84-85 I was out of school, I was about 20 years old and the end of jan and feb were brutal. We recorded snow and brutal cold the month of feb. One 8 inch snowfall followed by extreme cold and more snow. I think Jan 77 and Feb 85 was the most epic I have seen, hard to say which was worse. I would take anything similar and do cartwheels. That 1 week last year reminded me of that time it just didn't last near as long nor have the number of snows. But at least we had 2 decent snows in a weeks time that stayed on the ground for about 7 days. ::popcorn:: ::snowman::
