    Another lame post...but something to make you say...hrmmmmm.


    anyways...what do you think this winter will be like?

    I'm thinking it will be unusually hot, the heat will stay longer than normal, the first snow for CT will be around the middle of November, and warm up again, and December will be warmer than usual, with a hard cold spring that will yeild more snow than we've seen in years, and summer will come later than normal next year.

    Why do I think that??? you may be thinking...

    Well...in my garage...I have no food, all the food has been removed and cleaned out...the only protein type food in the garage is empty beer bottles with cigarettes dumped in them. the nights have cooled down to where I can see my breath, but warms back up in the day....Normal for this time of year in this region...but...at work it's the same...big hanger, doors are open until it gets too cold at night, and we're already breaking out the sweatshirts while we do sweating type work in the brisk weather. Strange...not really...but what is strange...is the fruit flies....or the damn normal flies. My garage has a small infestation...and there is nothing in here for them to really eat....I throw one living fly into a bottle of stale beer and it dies, but there are too many in here...and also at the hanger at work. The drains are infested with the little bugs. There are still spiders building nests and webs around the house...and I sprayed mid summer to kill off anything so the house would be pest free...but the dog is being bitten constanly by something that we actually had to go out and buy a steamcleaner to try to irradicate anything that the dog lays on in the house. The squirrels are shedding their coats of their summer fur, but they aren't really putting on any weight to get them thru a harsh winter.....and there was a butterfly flying circles around the hanger last night that lasted all night...the damn thing never landed or died...it's prolly on meth or something...but the animals this year are just staying like its still summer. Plus both of the oak trees on my property are dropping more accorns than last year, bigger and heaveir accorns...and both tree's...last year only one tree dropped the bombing nuts....I still can't figuare that out...but there has to be a reason.


    I learned to watch animals when the earthquake hit Kobe a long time ago. I had a male and female cat, and they were always trying to hump, but they could never get the job done...then one night....they actually did it, the noise they made at the time woke me up, and I was kinda proud of the male cat. Anyways, I've had the cats for years and nothing has happened. But that night, when they did finally get the job done...I freaked out...and a few hours later the earthquake hit Kobe...I lived about 15 mile from the most damage, but even my shack at the time had damage, and the area around us was effected....plus the GF at the time, who had huge tits, slept naked and when the quake happened, she ran outside with no shirt on....what memory....hehe....

    /7th beer done....time for bed.

    It snowed last week and that freeze was the 2nd latest in our towns 100 yr history. I predict a warmer winter (lows around -30F).

    lol. -30... i think the rest of the us would shut down if it got that cold.

    i think the coldest i've seen in my life is -15F with like 40mph winds, so like -30 with wind chill factor

    -18 here... plus windchill -22 last year. It was fucking cold last year... as well as icey.. no snow though which is odd... But Vermont goes through cycles, the past 2-3 years we haven't had much.. we are going to get dumped on soon.

    I'm with B on this one, cold but not much snow. The seasons seem to be combining slowly making it the same year round. When it does, I will move. I need snow :)

    I'm predicting a huge snow season in Chicago this year... Very little snow for the last few years, and almost no hurricanes down south (what that has to do with my hunch I don't know), it just seems like we're due for like 5 feet of snow.

    I'm about to go through my 25th Chicago winter, it's given me an absolute hatred of the cold (well that and being 6'0" and 125lbs, I shiver like a chihuahua in anyhting under 60 degrees). If I could, I'd love to move somewhere warm every fall and come back to Chicago in the spring.

    Worst I've been in is -80F with the wind chill here in the Chicago suburbs around 12 years ago. THAT was fun. :confused:

    I still have a 4WD so it won't snow at all. I'll get 10 mpg for no reason whatsoever.

    Well It had to be close to four years ago, but I remember like it was yesterday. For two solid weeks it was at or below zero and most days it was close to -22F

    Nights in the garage are awesome now.

    and that's my prediction for winter. We'll all be in our garages with a line of projects outside the garage door. Except for B, will watch TV and bitch about his commute. :)

    We had 17 inches here in Bellingham, WA this past week. But most of it is on its way to being melted. It was neat. I went skiing on tuesday up at Mt. Baker(look up world's snow record) and it was -15 out. Coldest and the most snow I've ever had at a house I'm living at in my life.

    The mountain had 98 new inches in the past 3 days when I went. Yet another world record. So much powder. I couldn't get enough.
