Will Binghamton See the Big ‘S’ Word Before Halloween
With summer behind us, my mind races past the fall season and right to winter. Why? Well, I dread winter, and I know it's coming, but there's nothing I can do about it. Oh well, that's my issue to deal with I suppose. Just a couple of days ago, it was 80, and as soon as Autumn showed up, Wham! Temperatures dropped into the 40s with frost warnings.
With winter weather heading our way in the not too far distance, when do you think we will experience our first snowfall? Will we have a mild winter, as compared to the winter of 2020-2021 when we won the New York State Golden Snowball Award? That was a winter I'd prefer to never repeat again. Last year we came in 3rd place out of the five upstate cities with 81.8 inches of snow, so that wasn't so bad.
Will kids deal with snow this Halloween? In a recent article, I wrote about the upcoming winter forecast from The Farmer's Almanac with their warning to prepare to "shake, shiver, and shovel" in the Northeast. That doesn't sound good. As for the week of Halloween, the Farmers' Almanac says "Trick-or-treaters enjoy mostly fair weather."
