The Almanacs are out!

Well on this last day of August and summer unoffically comming to an end I figured a new post is in order. I don't know about what everyone else thinks but for me this summer was on the boring-lame side. The weather was just terrible constant rain and storms, a cool wet period for late July and early August, no real summer heatwave. I think I used my pool all of twice this summer. And my garden was a major flop this year, the rain flooded my garden so often I lost most of my plants to mold and rot. Last year when it was hot and dry and SUNNY I pumped out almost 700 pounds of vegtables this year I barely cleared 100 pounds.

Anyways this past week the annual almanacs were released. While their is very little science involved in the forcasting of these two publications it is an interesting read and gets you into the "winter is comming" mode. The more traditional and more respected "Old Farmers Almanac" calls for our winter to be somewhat delayed and not starting until Thanksgiving. They call for a very cold December but not much in the way of snowfall. They then point towards a warm January followed by a cold March with much above average precipatation. So in a nutshell a pretty basic winter with the up and down times. However the original "Farmers Almanac" while it doesnt go into a much detailed forcast is warning those in the northeast to prepare for one of the worst winters we have seen in many years. They describe the northeast as being in danger of a long "numbingly cold and very snowy" winter.

While I don't want to get to deep into my early predicitions I had been leaning towards a cold, not numbingly, but still cold winter, that would see and early start with lots of lake effect follwowed by numerous general storms, before a very early start to the srping of 09. I am seeing this as being a top 5 snowfall season for a few GSB cities this season. However for the exact figures you are going to have to wait until October 1st when I post my official predicitions and kick off to lake effect season blog.

Lets hope the farmers almanac is right Steve :)

This summer was kind of a weird one for sure. It started out nice with the temps I like around 70, then got hot with all the thunderstorms. I think 2 tornado warning my way with a few tornado watches to boot. This weekend might get interesting if today gets as hot as they say it's suppose to with precip on the way.

This is the first year in a long time I didn't get a garden in and I think I am glad about it. Most of the people I talked to had the same problems as you did most likely caused by all that rain.

As for my summer it was an abnormally busy summer. Part of it was spent trying to get the new New York internet tax repealed with no success yet although the NY senate did vote for a repeal but now it's just sitting in the assembly doing nothing. I also made a trip to Boston for a summit in which a few of us tried to talk to merchants that we do business with that have dropped NY residents from their programs because of the new tax law.

I'm going to be blogging about it in the next few days but a summary is that an estimated 10,000 new yorkers income has been effected by this new tax law, what they are calling the Amazon tax law. More to come about that.

That said Boston was beautiful and a lot of fun. It was fun hanging with the rich and famous even if it was just a dream for a few days before reality set back in ;)
