I'm cool with a cold winter. Hope the West gets more precipitation than the last couple of years.

Cold winters usually mean dry winters. Warmer winters mean more precipitation. If it's cold, water isn't going to be evaporating as much as a warmer winter and you're going to have a lot less moisture in the air to coalesce and fall to the ground.

The Almanac's predictions are bunk. Independent studies say that their predictions are either too vague or not significantly better than random guesses.

One of the denier arguments is "they can't predict the weather three days from now, how do they think they can predict the climate 30 years from now?"[1] But apparently they can predict the weather five months from now, if Breitbart[2] is to be believed.

Actually, it's not a bad idea.

Not many people will realize what it is for and try to steal it.  And if they do, taking a lot of it is a big job, easy to notice and "work" which a lot of thieves won't do.

Plus, it'll last for centuries out in the weather no big deal. You can pile it in the back 40 no problem.

It's very dense heating, better than wood or a lot of other things, you can haul it, store it and process it yourself with simple tools with minimal risk to yourself and clean up is a matter of a broom and a bucket.

The only thing is you'll be exposed to burning coal fumes which isn't great for you, and your stove better be made for coal or it'll melt into your floor once you get a good fire going.

Anyway, cold or snow are both a pain in the rear in their own individual way. I sort of prefer snow as cold doesn't mean more exercise and it only costs me more if I am lazy.  Cold on the other hand, can double my heating expenses during a month.

This summer has flipped around to being hot and dry just like last year. So we may get a mild winter out of this.

A family story from long ago...my great grandparents had a house next to some railroad tracks. Bad snowstorm stranded a steam powered locomotive very close to their house. They gave the crew a place to stay until the snow cleared. In return the crew loaded up their basement with coal from the tender for use in the fireplaces. The amount they gave them lasted the next four years.

The only real criticism anyone can level at it is that they won't reveal their specific methods so they can be tested. It actually is more accurate than anything else a lot of the time, but that's not very hard. The weather predictions you get from meteorologists are less than 50% accurate just a couple days in advance, and get increasingly bad beyond that.

They very well might just be guessing, but if guessing is more accurate than anything else i'll go with guessing.

I live in SE Ohio (Appalachia).  This summer seems "on par" from my experience in relation to temperature, but it has been a very wet summer.  Usually by the end of August, I only have to mow once every two weeks, and this year it has been once every 3-5 days, and grass is growing under the shade trees (it should be sort of dry).  As for temperature,  we have had a week of two of "straight uncomfortable weather" mainly due to humidity (and in the low 90s), which is the norm for mid July, and occasional days of "man I hate summer" (that is a scientific unit of measurement by the way) thrown in there.

Last year was hotter.  About a week straight of over 100 degrees (after the derecho went through), and the whole month of of July was just miserable it seemed.  The coolest summer in recent memory was 2009.  One day in mid July it was 57 for a high, and the month barely averaged in the 80s.

That's nothing, the apples are large this summer (heard that meant a bad winter).

My father-in-law was talking to an old Amish man one day.  The Amish man was lamenting about how he used to be able to predict, with fairly high accuracy I guess, the weather based on the actions of the animals.  He said that since he started getting the newspaper and reading the weather report, he lost that ability.

Since the advent of supercomputers used for modeling weather, meteorology is actually pretty damn accurate in its forecasts for the short term (all predictions will decrease in confidence the further they are in the future, where there are more complex factors in play). But for the next 72 hours, the forecasts are really quite good.

This is a far cry compared to only maybe 20 years ago, when weather forecasts relied on meteorologists indexing meteorological conditions (i.e. pressure is 101 kPa, temperature is 88F, and humidity is 30%, winds coming from the Northwest). They compare current conditions to past instances that were similar in features to make their predictions. This was usually pretty wrong.

Supercomputer modeling weather, though? That's pretty damn good.

Basically I think we were due for a nice summer (which we are enjoying) and we are due for a cold low snow winter. Big wild berry season and all the wasps are ground nesting...the old guys here say that means a cold dry winter. YMMV.

ol_rooter: strathcona: ol_rooter: ThunderPelvis: If this summer felt unusually cool for you, you may not like give a sh*t what the Farmers' Almanac has to say about the coming winter

Subby, checking the Farmer's Alamanac for weather predictions is like checking Breitbart  Daily KOs, NYT, Cobert, The Daily Show, Media Matters, and HuffPo for anything: laughably stupid and certain proof of a deep and abiding ignorance.

Oh look, a retard.

Ok, since you started the name calling, here's where I say something very demeaning about your grandma, you know? Then, you can't think of anything to say, so you go look at my profile, copypasta, and hope your fark-friends will pay attention to you, but they won't, because of the way I told them that your grandma loves to hump rabbit's feet, still attached to the rabbit.


Bou did you ever tell me, sock-puppet.

See that little bit of "normal" in the US mid section proves global warming is false. Suck it libs.


1951-1980? Farking climate normals, how do they work?

Deep Contact: Have to see how the woolly caterpillars look this year.


Expectations are dismal this year, with a projected decrease in production of 47%.
Looming sweater shortages have prompted many retailers to hold on to available stock in the hope of increased consumer demand, thus justifying higher POS prices.
In conclusion, last years cardigan may be this years gold mine.

...you don't live in North America, Europe, Africa, South America, or Asia.

Or you're having a stroke.


We had an unusually cool start to the summer in Saskatchewan. This month is more than making up for it, though. 1030 am, and it's already 37 C with the humidex.

I can't believe they haven't moved onto to something a bit less stupid as a counterpoint.  It's like children who are like:  "look mom the sun is out why would I need a coat".

TopoGigo: phrawgh: Winter's coming.

GODDAMNIT, why didn't I think to use that? That would have made my comment at least 500% more clever.


I'll withhold judgement until I see some pictures of Winter.

Wait, so because that graph uses a normal that was from 25 years ago to demonstrate a noted increase in relative heat content, you're going to imply his post is erroneous? You do realize that his map came straight from NASA, right? Did you even read the purpose behind the existence of normals, or just run straight for a "gotcha"?

Here is the link to GISS temperature data. They use 1951-1980 as a baseline comparison for all the publicly available data to make it easier for making comparisons.

1951-1980 was a relatively cold period, using that climatology makes the current relatively warm period seem that much more warmer. Couple that with the fact that NASA GISS has a long history of cooling the past and warming the present, it's no wonder that they ignore NOAA and NWS guidelines for climate normals

I knew he'd not actually click the link. Hey, guess what, if you don't like the 1951-1980 baseline, you can select your own:

data.giss.nasa.gov

Hmm, in spite of your claims to the contrary, there is still an obvious and significant amount of warming compared to the baseline.

From TFA:

"The famous Farmer's Almanac is going to damper the mood of many man-made global warming alarmists when the book hits the shelves on Monday. They predict the 2013-2014 winter will be extremely cold."

Ok, one more time.

Global warming means the weather system is absorbing more energy.  It means the baseline temperature is going up.  It also means that due to this the system has more energy in it.  The extremes will be more extreme.

Think of a pendulum.  If you give it a light shove, it will rock back and forth.  If you smack it with a baseball bat it will swing about wildly.  More energy equals more energetic oscillation.

That's global warming.  An extreme winter does not disprove it.  It is an expected result.

In the mid-atlantic it's been cooler and wetter this summer. Much cooler and wetter; there were no "dog days of August" this year.

Also, very few rapid temperature changes that result in violent thunderstorms. None. Which made it very boring.

I live in North America - and this is the coldest summer I've ever experienced in my lifetime.  It is about to hit 90 for only the 3rd time all summer.

/not complaining
//if this is global warming - bring it on!


It got up to 87 in Anchorage, Alaska.  In June.  I'm in Virginia, and after a few 105 with the heat index days, it's been in the mid 80s, which is comfortable for me, but hardly "unusually cool."   It's cooler down south because it's unusually hot in the north.  It's the kind of thing that leads to droughts in unusual (and unprepared) places, floods in others, and other assorted mayhem that global warming is bringing on.

But no, I'm not complaining about the weather here at all.  It's going to be a beautiful week.  I'm still going to piss in some retarded Breitbartian Corn Flakes,  though.

While it was a cooler than average summer here, extra-cold winters are a prediction of global warming models, so an extra cold winter wouldn't disprove global warming. Cool summers would though.

Not going to the link ... but fleas and ticks have been *OUTRAGEOUS* here in Tidewater Virginia after a number of mild winters.  Bring it on!
