Bastardi: Three of Next Five Winters Could be as Cold or Colder

This winter is on track to become the coldest for the nation as a whole since the 1980s or possibly even the late 1910s. According to Chief Long Range Forecaster Joe Bastardi, three or four out of the next five winters could be just as cold, if not colder.

Tracking the Snowy Beast (2-1-2011)


If you have been near a TV or the internet over the past 24-hours, it is almost impossible that you haven’t heard about the MAJOR winter storm that is preparing to chew up and spit out a large part of the country.

UK right to quickly correct this mistake – John Clay –

When you make a mistake, you correct it.

You correct it, and you move on.

As quickly as you can.
