Sorry if my posts seemed a little excited. Maybe I'm just reading into all this too much and I've made myself believe this is gonna be a really crappy off the wall winter.
Or maybe I'm onto something.. any feedback and serious discussion is welcomed.
Prove. Me. Wrong. .. please.

So far although we have had really cold temperatures up here, it hasn't been that bad yet, or so I am told, but it does seem that it will be a damn cold and long winter.

In an effort to stay geographically germane to the thread topic, I uncovered this with a cursory search.
A mere 5 years ago December 2000 was the second coldest December in the Midwest in 106 years, with temperatures averaging 14.6 degrees F. Only December 1983 was colder, with temperatures averaging 13.9 degrees F," said Kenneth E. Kunkel, climatologist at the Midwestern Regional Climate Center at the Illinois State Water Survey in Champaign, Illinois.
While people are quick to enthusiastically agree with the perception that they've never seen it this cold it has, in fact, been colder.
