I'd say bring it. I'm a summer guy but as a weather fan winter is the most exciting season.
The only good winter out of that bunch was 2006-07. The rest...

The winter of 2018-2019 might just be an ice age end of the world scenario the way things are shaping up.

There will be no ice age in our lifetimes. Just hotter and hotter weather over the next 1500 years. And bank on a dry winter for my area and above normal temps. Just gonna get worse over the years.

I don't put much stock into long range forecasts. If you look at the forecast maps in the OP, you'll see why. They flip flop back and forth month to month. They don't know either.

Last winter was really cold here in the ozarks of north AR. We went below zero several times, with wind chills hitting -25 many times also. We had days where the highs were only in the single digits. That doesn't happen too often for this area. We were mostly dry though with the exception of April, it snowed 4 times. I should add I'm at 2200' elevation.

We are entering further into a solar minimum. Weather can get extreme during these. Who knows what we'll see this winter.

I sure have. Cuba is my first pick if it ever becomes free. At least i can enjoy a hurricane every few years and much more rain.

I've been through many hurricanes, there isn't anything to enjoy about them. I'm glad I'll never have to go through one again. But from the sounds of your posts, I figured you'd rather be somewhere that has a cooler climate.
