Cold Start

Many of you may recall that November 2016 was a warm one.  It was one of the warmest Novembers on record.  Much of the region recorded very little snowfall with temperature 10-15 degrees above average.  I personally always consider winter to be from November 1 through March 31 in this area, meaning last year the warm November eliminated 20% of the winter.  Through yesterday, the temperatures are running 10-15 degrees below average so far this month, pretty much the exact opposite of last year.  Looked at another way, this month so far has been 25 to 30 degrees colder than what we experienced a year ago.  Brrrrr.
