Winter is Coming

Based on my Twitter feed, apparently the Farmer’s Almanac has come out with a winter forecast.  This forecast supposedly is for a Teeth Chattering cold winter.  Considering the warmest winters on record in these parts the average temperature is around 20 degrees and a winter temperature around 12 degrees would be considered average.  Therefore, no matter what the upcoming winter ends up being like, the teeth chattering cold is going to happen when you live in the northern plains.  The almanac’s winter forecast always makes for headlines which I find odd considering their accuracy is quite poor, but I will say some of their recipes are quite good.
