upcoming hurricane season/winter?

Any theories on how either will be or what we are in for? Have you heard anything from those in the know?

I barely follow the daily weather, so I have no clue.

I'm hoping for a mild winter..but I have been pricing out snowblowers..

Trying to keep my head in the sand.

I don't want to think about anything even close to another Sandy.

Especially because I know with just crappy weather, some people are still flooding out.

Snow. I can deal with snow.

That doesn't seem as bad to me for some reason, even though the power could still potentially go out.

I had a party over the weekend and some people were theorizing it's going to be a "rough winter".

I don't think we will see a hurricane our way this year.

I think the farmer's almanac said a wet and cold winter for us this year.

Just saw on the news this morning that as of now there have been no hurricanes so they are thinking we will be ok.

Hurricanes no. Cold snowy winter I'm guessing yes with how cold it has been in late Aug/early Sept

Who the hell- besides GOD- can predict the weather?
They can't even get tomorrow's forecast right.
All this stuff about- oh it's going to be a cold snowy winter or a mild winter...who is making such long range predicitions?

this is EXACTLY why i read this thread. as we prepare to declutter for our socal move... i was thinking i could get rid of the grill. then i thought, "as soon as we get rid of the grill, we'll lose power for the entire winter."

what does my grill have to do with power, you ask?

i have an electric stove and oven. if we lose power, our grill is how we cook.

i think i'll error on the side of caution and keep the grill until the spring yard sale season... this way, i can help the cause of no hurricanes and no power outages!

Apparently the Olde Farmer's Almanac has been pretty accurate and they're calling for a snowy winter! Chat Icon

I heard about that but I just feel like there was this one year that was supposed to be snowy and horrible- and then it turned out super mild.
I just feel like it's 50-50 on if it will be correct- like the Chinese gender charts for if the baby is a boy or girl! Chat Icon

I'm really hoping for a very mild winter. Flurries, fine. But no blizzards like last year.

ETA: I'm really dreading winter.

I moved into my apartment in summer 2010. At the old place the landlord handled snow removal so I didn't own a shovel. I never bought one. Remember the blizzards that year? The next winter I bought 2 shovels plus new ice scrapers & the de-icer in a can.... and neeeded none of it. I'm thinking of buying as many snow removal tools as I can this winter Chat Icon

They can barely predict the weather accurately for the same week. I have stopped listening to the guesses they make each year. They are always saying bad hurricane year or lots of snow...then nothing happens.
