"The 2008 Farmers’ Almanac long-range forecasts are calling for colder than normal conditions for the eastern half of the country – chiefly those areas east of the Mississippi –with snowier than normal conditions expected.
"The 2008 Farmers’ Almanac predicts that skiers in eastern New York and New England will enjoy some great conditions. The winter should also average as much as three degrees below normal down most of the Atlantic Coast, from New England through the Mid-Atlantic and the Piedmont into the Southeast. Cold conditions are on tap for the Southeast, with at least four cold frosts predicted all the way to Florida."
Hope springs eternal.
