It's only Mid-December and already I've been out at least 3 time shoveling. What does the rest of the month, and the rest of the winter hold in store for us here in CT. and N.Y.Here's what the Farmers Almanac has to say:

The “Days of Shivery” are back! 
For 2013–2014, we are forecasting a winter that will experience below average temperatures for about two-thirds of the nation. A large area of below-normal temperatures will predominate from roughly east of the Continental Divide to the Appalachians, north and east through New England.

Southern New England, Southeast New York, New Jersey, and down through the Mid-Atlantic region will be seeing either copious rains and/or snows.

I don't know if I like the term "Copious Snow" , so I looked it up,

Here's your official definition:
abundant in supply or quantity.
synonyms: abundantsuperabundantplentifulampleprofuse,overflowing, in abundance,manynumerous.
Guess we have no choice but "deal with it", at least till March 21st !!!!
