Weather or Not.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now, its just some guy in orange tracking a buck. November falls upon us not unlike the snow that will shortly follow the turning of the calendar. Most of the white stuff won't be sticking around long, until Thanksgiving, when there's a strong chance it will stay for a good five months.

El Nino is back, (can you say mudslide), and with it lots of precipitation. How much we will see, and how much of it will be snow depends on the jet stream. The winter could be wet and ugly, or, with a half dozen Alberta clippers, we could be clubbing seals instead of shooting bucks, kissing with our noses and saying things like, 'Maybe, ay, we should rename Main street for Wayne Gretzky, ay?' It could happen. Snow does weird things to people--just ask Jack Nicholson....
