    And no offense, but "think snow"? Personally, I can understand "pray" for snow (although I understand that is offensive to some), but "think" snow? It's absolutely meaningless. Pure tripe.

    Again, no offense.

    I guess I am showing my age. Back in '70's there was a proliferation of bumper stickers that said THINK SNOW. I was a kid then and I guess that is just burned into my brain. Plus, it was always popular to say "Pray for surf" so I save my "praying" for surf.......

    In any event, one man's "tripe" is another mans inspiration.

    But to your real point, that "all signs are pointing to a winter that is....marginal"? What data are you basing this on? I subscribe to Accuweather and Weatherbell (because I myself am no expert) and they both indicate signs for a colder than normal winter, not marginal. Now they may be wrong, but they have well researched data to back them up. You?

    Looks like another La Nina year. They first thought that it would switch soon but now looks to be around into February before it weakens.

    Watched a weather channel segment this morning about their thoughts on winter weather trends (so take all of this with a grain of weather channel salt!!)

    Their thoughts due to above average mid Oct snow on the ground in Eastern Siberia and how that has effected things in the past, is that a North Atlantic omega block with predominate, which is likely to bring at worst "normal" temps, and likely cooler than normal weather to the upper Midwest and East, with a warm, dry ridge setting up over the Rockies and Sierra's....

    Time will tell....
