"It's running well above normal," said Matt Rogers, president of Commodity Weather Group, a commercial forecaster in Bethesda, Md. "Through the last week of September, it's the highest snow total in Eurasia since 1977."

We’re being told it will be the coldest winter in over 100 years.

The Old Farmers Almanac has already called for a cold winter.

1977 was a monster year for snow and cold!

“We’re being told it will be the coldest winter in over 100 years.”

And many of us would be most thankful to the citizen that ties up the Gorething outside so that we can 1) watch that fat dork freeze to death, and 2) then take bodacious Obamas on the carcass.

It has already been cold here in Oklahoma.

In September, 911,000 square miles of northern Europe and Asia were covered by snow, according to the Rutgers University Global Snow Lab. That compared with the 1981-2010 mean of 1.5 million.

"It's running well above normal," said Matt Rogers, president of Commodity Weather Group . . . .

Only a global warmist would say that 911,000 is "well above" a mean of 1.5 million. Or do I need to take a global warming math class or something?

That number is for end of September but their final calculation will be for end of October.

November begins on Friday and I'm planning on the weather to turn sharply colder - followed by varying amounts of snow and ice.

I would prefer snow to ice as ice tends to bring power lines down and send my cars into ditches.

I have the following items in preparation:

If you all can think of anything else, please feel free to add it to this thread.

Would be funny if a few of those Greenpeace guys the Russians arrested spent a few winters in a Siberian prison. They will get a whole new perspective on global warming.

You are a little short on fire wood. We usually burn about 5 cords, I have 8 cords dry and ready to go.

Add tractor with blade and 4wd vehicle. You need to open the road for emergency vehicles.

Someone texted me in alarm from the West Cost weeks ago that the geese were already flying south. Usually it is about three months later.

It was even on Drudge that Crater Lake had snow months before it usually does.

Let’s not allow this to become political. It’s too important for people to prepare.

Under Armor Cold Gear shirts, pants, sweats and undies. This is incredible stuff. You can layer it up in the morning and un layer if the day warms up.

Wool socks of various thickness for you and your wife. In the wintertime, if my wife wants to cuddle at night, she has to have wool socks on her icey chunks posing as feet.

Have the ingredients in cans to make good soup if a power loss takes out your refrigerator/freezer.

“The sun is ‘quietening’ really rapidly. We think it is actually quietening more rapidly than at any time in the last 10,000 years. “So this is a major change. We think lower solar activity does seem to tie up with more cold winters in central Europe and the UK.”

We just got a bit of snow here at 2500 ft in north Idaho. That should send another wave of recent California move-ins fleeing in dismay.

Yep - lost the power in the windstorm up my way last night, and I'm stumbling around outside with a headlamp on and there were these little bitty flakes in the light beam...

The outage caught me in the shower, too, all soaped up and suddenly blind, with the water pressure slowly decreasing. Flashlight was across the room. I'm lucky to be alive... ;-)

I remember that 77 was a nasty winter; it was the first year that I was stationed at Minot ND.

69-70 was also pretty damned cold and snowy. After weeks of -20 average temps it made going to boot camp at MCRD SD seem like a tropical vacation. I was getting my ass beaten every day but at least it was warm(er).

Cold winters are relative to your geographical location during any particular period of time.

There will be NO snow this winter, there will just be “crystalized rain.” The blessed Algore tells us that it is to warm to snow in the winter due to his warming globull.

(Please note this statement is sarcastic)

It’s been a while since I’ve heard the term “Alberta clipper” or “SIBERIAN EXPRESS” used for a cold front headed our way.

Phoenix AZ prides itself on never having snow. One year they did get, what they called, “soft sleet”.

I recall it vividly. I would not go on my brother’s paper route again after one time in the cold and snow for 3+ hours. As a 5 year old kid, it was brutal. Looking back on it now, I’m surprised that I didn’t lose my feet. I never remember being that cold since - my feet hurt for at least 4 hours after that.

2 1/2 cords of firewood - two fireplaces

Check out a fireplace insert. Will improve your heating efficiency and produce much more heat (much, much more) than a standard fireplace.

My theory has long been that cold,or heat(and precipitation) is created in a finite quantity from the poles and the equator. This then reacts to other meteorological forces in a zero sum manner. If Europe gets unnaturally cold,snowy and prolonged winter weather, we then get less and vice versa.

The night of December 28-9, 1982, Ft. Huachuca got 12-15 inches of ‘soft sleet’ from a storm that came in from Mexico that stalled over El Paso.

We need their model, because it has been far more accurate than official “climate expert” models, and has been for around a century.

winter weather alert

Don't know about your area, but we are long overdue. When I first moved up here 21 years ago, it began snowing in November and did not stop until April. By January, I could no longer see my neighbor over the snow banks. I was told this was a rare winter. The following winter was even worse, culminating with a blizzard in mid March that dumped an additional 27" on top of the 3' already accumulated. The builder sent in backhoes to clear our driveways. It's been fairly quiet ever since.

Bring it on!!

A few years ago there was a study that had the Farmers Almanac right at 50%, Weathermen right at 47% and I would guess that gorbull warming is right less than 1%.

The power out in the shower thing. I hate that when that happens.

Big chore for the day was switching out the regular watering tubs and buckets for the heated ones. Hard freeze tonight.

Yeah, I know. I'm stuck in Moscow with the well-house heater not tested yet. It's been fine the last couple of years but the first hard freeze is always a nervous time. Now I'm online looking for a decent kerosene lantern. The lamps I have aren't really for outdoor use.

FReepers, any suggestions? I'm partial to the Kirkmans but anyone else's experience will be welcome information.

I’ve got a recollection from that era, could have been Jan 1977, when there was snow on the ground in every one of the fifty states (back before there were 57).

1977 was a monster year for snow and cold!

Remember it well. Lived in N. Ohio and was driving a full sized van. Had the radiator blocked with cardboard and a blanket hung to screen off the rear section behind the seat and STILL was freezing.
