So now that it's officially September, that can only mean one thing -- new pencil boxes? Check. Flipping a page on the calendar? Obvs, check. But how about the release of the 2011 Farmers' Almanac? Check! Bet you either a) didn't even know about that, or b) don't care one bit. Well, I'll give you a reason to care, mister!
Per this excerpt, "For the eastern third of the country (New England down to Florida and as far west as the Mississippi River), forecasters predict "much colder-than-normal winter temperatures" -- but generally not as frigid as conditions felt last winter, which saw 49 states experience snowfall. New England in particular should be sure to bundle up, as forecasters predict a "cold slap in the face" compared with last year's uncharacteristically mild winter for the region."
As you know, I love snow. The more, the better. But really, all I'm asking for this winter is that it's below 32 degrees Fahrenheit from Christmas until January 2 so the ice at this sure-to-be-epic Winter Classic will stay firm. Bring it, Caps!
