Plenty of good days like this last year. How ’bout this coming winter?
So my friends over at the CAIC posted an interesting link to a site called ExactaWeather.com. The latest forecast from the organization says this coming winter may be just as “severe” (read: epic) as last. Right on!
Not so fast. First off it says the organization is made up of Euros and Brits, as well as Americans. I smell an Islamist Socialist Plot here, folks. These pesky Euros can’t be trusted to predict weather, provide healthcare, or contribute to our latest NATO foreign-policy adventure! Pinkos! They’re probably just trying to spook us into buying their inventory of day-glo Bogner one-pieces.
I visited the site a bit and upon a bit more sniffing, ExactaWeather.com seems to be funded by a business providing snow and ice mitigation/removal. Perhaps it’s some sort of industry front, trying to cajole Bloomburg and the town of Jackson into buying a fleet of turbocharged monster-plows?
CAIC — do tell: industry front or reputable site?
Me? I don’t have the time to investigate these things! I’m too busy trying to redpoint 5.9+ in Eldo and changing the boys’ diapers. Dammit.
Well, if the (Islamo-Fascist Pinko-Euro) team at Exacta are right, we’re in for another cold, high-precip winter. Something about an extended La Nina pattern for the foreseeable future. One of their Brits (he had OK-looking teeth, too; maybe an imposter?) nailed last winter’s forecast in the UK, so he’s garnered some notoriety.
Bottom line, let’s just hope they’re right and not worry too much about them being a front to sell snowplows or has-been outfits. Click through HERE poke around; see what you think.
In the meantime, Ethan, Lazar, and the gang — is thing legit, or what?
