wilber, don't get discouraged. You just need to understand a few things:
First, forget NOAA go with this year's Farmers Almanac. The Almanac predicts an early and banner year for the PNW. Remember, always go with the forecast that seems most promising. Besides, the Almanac forecast accounts for diminished sunspot activity which NOAA has completely overlooked.
Second, a proper sacrifice to the winter god of skiing is extremely important. In this case, your new Metron's will do nicely. Send a PM to Phil P. and he can undoubtedly make sure that your sacrifice gets to Ull (or the Epic Ski Auction.) Sure, you will be out a pair of new skis but think how great a PNW deeply blanketed in snow will be.
Have a great season.
P.S. Just kidding about the skis.
