Just put the Snowtrekker away into "warm" storage.

Long story short- certain long term teleconnections around the globe are pointing to a likely early arrival of Fall/Winter here in about 5-6 months. One of those is a slight El Nino ( a Modoki El Nino due to it's location in the Central Pacific ) is forecast to develop by next winter. If that happens , previous Springs that had a very cold (like this) Spring almost always have an early onset of Fall/Spring with the onset of a El Nino , along with other teleconnections that are in step around the globe. In other words, very short growing seasons etc. is expected this year for the Upper Midwest. What be too long now and the days will be getting shorter and the shadows longer.....

I’m too old to be cheated out of spring-summer-fall.

That's good news for those of us who like to get a winter trip in as early as possible in December.

I'm glad for you posted this warning of an early winter here, Whitewolf. With so many in the area having just finished shovelling out from a very late season blizzard, and so many doubts about whether the lakes will thaw for fishing opener, I fear if you'd posted this under General Onformation or Trip Planning some might be trying to run you out of the forum!

Yep- I have to be careful ( the winter guy that I'am) where I post stuff. Sure I love to canoe in the BW/Q etc, but I love winter more.

Another thing I will only admit here--- only in low 70's here, but the dewpoint has been stuck in the mid 60's for about a day. Had the windows open for a little this morning after a fresh rain-- but that wasn't cool enough and I had worked up a sweat cleaning the gutters and eavspouts from the Silver Maple red junk--- so yeah-- on came the A/C
Just one more good cold front before the dreaded summer arrives? O:)
