Your winter 2011 forecast

Nothing like starting the month off on the wrong (or neither) foot by skipping a morning run!  I'm not making excuses, but the gym finally reopened on Monday and let's just say it's/I've been kicking my butt so far this week and consequently feel wiped out and ready for bed by 8:30.  The run will happen on Friday, I'm making a public pledge so someone please hold me to it :)

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!

Oh goodness, Peanuts cartoons get me every time.  But seriously, the Farmers' Almanac is a nice little set of predictions for the 2011 calendar year, including a forecast of the winter to come.  Think it's total fluff?  An accuracy score of 80-85% says otherwise.  Follow the jump to find out whether we'll be having a paradise-like winter or a repeat of Snowpocalypse...

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!
