I look at it this way. Last weekend, when it was plenty cold enough, I wasn’t looking out the window wishing it was colder. No, I was looking at a radar screen that showed no precipitation. Earlier this month when we had snow for like four hours I wished we had more precipitation. In December when it snowed before Christmas about 1 1/2”, I wished it had snowed for more than 2 hours. Earlier in December during our anafrontal fiasco, I wished that we had a wave of precip when there was zip. The past few days when it has been plenty cold I wish we would have had a clipper or something to deliver some precip. In November when it was abnormally cold I wish we’d had some precip instead of the 0.001 that fell and dusted the ground.
We have windows of cold every year without fail. I’ll always say give me the precip and I’ll take my chances. If this active pattern advertised comes, I’ll guarantee you that we score.
Just one persons opinion.
