    It's a La Niña year - cooler waters upwelling in the Pacific mean the air masses crossing the continent are cooler than they would be in a non-La Niña year, leading to a "cold winter" on the North American continent.

    If this is the new version of a "cold winter," I dread the return of El Niño. I've only had to wear my coat 4 days this year, in December in Vermont. Sure, I like the less bulky apparel, and it's nice that I was able to dig a trench for electrical conduit in the frost-free ground without power equipment today, but for crying out loud, my son wore a t-shirt to school today!

    Did I mention we had mosquitoes over the weekend? Mosquitoes. WTF?!!
