This is just the kind of thing I LOVE to read!

As if I'm not depressed enough that Summer is over and that Winter is on the way.

Looks like there's going to be a lot of layering and wearing "Snuggies" or some such in the W2LJ household this coming winter. I'm also not looking forward to the heating gas bills. It looks like in the near future that there will be some trips to Lowe's or the Home Depot for weather stripping and other such supplies.

I can only hope that the guys who came up with this forecast are the same ones who predicted a killer hurricane season this year.

  1. Hello Larry, I don't believe forecasts in general. Yes, summer here is also gone. We had a perfect summer till yesterday. No complaints about it. But now we have overcast and drizzling rain, temperatures are going down, fitting autumn days. 73, Paul PC4T

  2. These same guys (well, not the same ones, but the same profession) forecast that we would have a blistering heatwave in the UK this year. They were even issuing daft advice like consider painting our houses white and know what the coolest room in the house is. Duh!

    Then they expect me to believe their predictions of what the climate will be in 50 years time. Gimme a break!

  3. Cool! (Pun intended) I'm an ice fisherman :-)
