I'M DREAMING OF A WARM HALLOWEEN... BECAUSE
WHAT HAPPENS IN DECEMBER, WINTER WILL REMEMBER.



80 DEGREES AMONG THE PUMPKINS OF MY BACKYARD IN DUNDALK THIS AFTERNOON. That is a wonderfully good sign for all you powderhounds out there. Don't get spooked by the nice weather, because it means winter will creep up on us ever so slowly. And then one fine morning in early December, you will open your window to a frightfully white sight of snow, snow, snow.

It means that the pattern will get throw out of whack for November, leading to a Thanksgiving repeat of the Halloween warmth, which in turn produces below normal temperatures for early December. Throw in some Gulf and Pacific moisture courtesy of our weak El Nino, and presto! Instant snow day the first week of December.

So enjoy the sunshine and blue skies, it's a sign that good days are ahead, that is if you like snow.
