Default "Farmers' Almanac" predicts a "bitterly cold" winter

FYI! Outdoor Super Bowl like old times!

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57600023/farmers-almanac-predicts-a-bitterly-cold-winter/

The Farmers' Almanac is using words like "piercing cold," "bitterly cold" and "biting cold" to describe the upcoming winter. And if its predictions are right, the first outdoor Super Bowl in years will be a messy "Storm Bowl."

It's been a very mild summer here. Only hit triple digits three times, and just barely.

It has been unbearably hot here. I welcome the witches tit. I can dress for the cold. There is no dressing or undressing for the heat.

Yea here too in southern indiana. Usually this time a year we are bearing 100 degrees or more with 90% or better humidity. The last month about its been in the low to mid 80's. This last week it was almost 90 but thats the hottest its been in awhile. Last August it was 108 and we were camping at that time.

My ac quit in my dakota last week but because it hasnt really been that hot Ive not worried about getting the $19 resistor needed to get it fixed. Redneck ac feels ok at 70 mph on the freeway. I did wish it was working last Wednesday because we got some rain so I couldnt run with the winders down.

I kind of had a feeling it was gonna be a cold winter because of the unseasonably cool summer we are having now. Not to mention last winter was really that cold for us.

I hope we have a prolonged cold winter in OK with lots of snow. That would kill off some spiders, scorpions, ticks and ants. It we had enough snow Okies might learn how to drive in the stuff.

The colder the better. I hope the predictions are true. Joe deBunker, one of my favorite philosophers once said "you can't be too rich or too cold".
