Default Coming winter could justify snowblower buy

I saw this article last week...glad we got that snowblower for our skidsteer!:

Coming winter could justify snowblower buy - Spokesman.com - Sept. 21, 2010
The Inland Northwest is likely to see a cold and snowy winter this year under a weather pattern similar to 2007-’08, when La Niña brought near-record snowfall...

Okay, so...I have heard everything from "furry squirrels" to "lazy bees" explaining why we will have a heavy winter this year and I am still wondering where all this knowledge comes from? Personally I think Mom Nature just waits to see what everyone expects and then does the exact opposite, just to shake things up a bit. But to be safe, I bought two snow shovels...heh heh heh.

Hmmm...that might account for the moose I saw while I was out walking last week. He was wearing a muffler.

There will be NO snow tires, snow chains, studs, tracks or lift kits on my car. It will be acting like a bear during the winter. We have the driving in snow vehicle covered though:
