VERMILION, Ohio– Last winter was mild and kind, as winters go, here in northern Ohio.

It was the fifth warmest winter since 1940. Our snowfall was a meager 32.8 inches. That’s the smallest snowfall amount since the winter of 1957-58.

This year, our fuzzy friends of fall are forlorn, foretelling of ferocious forecasts.

The woollybear’s middle, brown stripe has narrowed; the black bookends have advanced, as will many surges of brutally cold air from the Arctic.

Get out your shovels, dust off your boots, the winter forecast is for much colder conditions compared to last year.

Skiers and snowboarders will be singing the praises of our fuzzy friends with several shots of shovel-able snow. At least 65 inches can be expected.

Spring will arrive fairly fast this time around with very few flakes flying after early April.

In this coming winter season, be kind to all animals and never forget it’s only a forecast. Old Man Winter is sure to relent by late May.
