Well I personally havent read nor heard of any winter updates but...in MI usually the hotter the summer the better winter is going to be. Just my 2cents

thats how it is around here in CT. last year we had a very mild and constantly wet summer, and that gave us a warm and dry winter.

so far this year its been super hot and unusually dry. hopefully, that will mean a really cold and snowy winter...i hope.

We had average snow last year, but it seemed like a hell of a lot.
Reason: We received a big storm on Christmas, lots of snow (for us).
That resulted in no January thaw. We usually go through several cycles of snow then thawing.

Thats how it is here. Hot summer with no rain means cold winter with lots of snow. So far this year, we have had about 1/4 the rain of last year, and the heat ( for the most part ) has been practically unbearable. Some of the hottest weather on record this year. 99 in Maine is wicked! Lets see what august has in store for us.

If that is how it works, I'm hosed!! We have had heat but we also have had over 14 inches of rain since 6/1. That's more than double the "normal" amount!!

We will see, it's been rainy but hot. IMO I'd be happy if it was a cold winter with no thaws and average snowfall.

Fields here are way ahead of schedule and I have heard of some farmers about to start on a second cutting of hay.

Last year we had a lot of rain through out the summer and a lot of rain in the fall which led to a pretty good winter for us here in SD. So far this year we have had quite a bit of rain so hopefully the trend continues.

My main concern is that the Black Hills get twice their average since last year sucked.

And that the Snowies and Big Horns get their fair share as well.

At least this past june wasnt a washout like last year. Hopefully we get cold early so I can get some early season rides in.

We only grow grass-so only one of two crops each year. Would have had a nice second if I could have cut early. And it is for horses meaning no rain on the hay or baling slightly damp. Mold is not good for their lungs.
