And that is why I do sometimes think it could be really bad like last year. I don't like cold, and Bastardi does have a real cold bias. I'm shell shocked I guess cause he called both winters last year very close. He is saying again this year will be terrible come February, and you have left Feb a question mark. I will not be confident until the GOA water temps are below average. Yet again as we go into winter they are still above average. That is what scares me. It just seems like the new normal is a huge ridge around the PNW, and a deep trough over the east for the winter months. I so hope this winter breaks the cycle. I thought 2010 and 2011 were bad, but the last two were worse. I want a string of average to above winters to make up for the last 4 out of 6.
