    Say it ain’t so! Read this

    Can’t decide whether to dismiss it or rush out and buy industrial quantities of burlap to protect my “vulnerables”. I thought “La Nina” had moved on…..

    Dusting off the snow shovel and checking my salt supplies, as I type.

    cliff mass says its a double dipper la nina, which means cold, wet and snowy.

    Run that by me again! Cold, wet AND snowy. Sounds like a double dipper la nina equates to a double dipper recession then….aka depression. :(

    as long as it’s not as bad as last year! I was afraid it was going to be worse! Whew. bcgarden has the right idea though – i’m off to make hot chocolate too.

    anelson: thanks for all the links. Fascinating reading…albeit a bit depressing.

    I’m not sure whether there’s any veracity in this – or if it’s just a piece of garden folklore I’ve acquired over the years – but I’ve just noticed my neighbour’s holly trees are simply smothered in ripening berries. If you believe such things, that’s also supposed to be a predictor of an extra cold winter to come…

    I’ll bring the burlap, snow shovels and salt and bcgarden2010 and laurieann can bring the hot chocolate! :)

    The predicted cold and snow has finally hit. Next 2 week forecast is also for colder and wetter than normal.
