No Snow? Whats going on?

The majority of winter precipitation forecasts are predicting above average snowfall for Great Lakes, Northern Mn, and surrounding areas. Last year at this time we had over 30 inches already. I am about to go nuts if I continue to look out the window and see grass. Is Mother Nature just waiting to unleash and nail all of us at once? It is my understanding that unless your in the HIGH country you have no snow. I am considering burning some skis or lighting a mother make it dump candle. There has got to be something that we can do....

I dont think that global warming is the issue. We are plenty cold, In fact some crazy people have already been ice fishing. We need the MOISTURE!

I was out riding this morning. Not enough snow to go on the trails but enough to take a couple laps around the yard. Too bad it's already gone!

no ice here either. just cold nights and mild day time temps of 35-45 degrees. supposed to snow tonight, but only amounts of "a trace to 3 inches", and temps this weekend will have it all gone in a day.

Some lakes are still open up here. But most are frozen, On a positive note, we need the cold to make for good ice on the lakes and swamps! SLUSH=BAD. Like last year there was slush until late JAN. I didnt ride on lakes until mid to late JAN.

guys are still out boating on the river here in north dakota! Although there is a winter storm rolling through, lots of wind, ice, but only 1 inch or so of accumulation.

Most of what we had this morning is melted. We really need a good freeze since we had record rain and the trails are 6" of mud, then a foot or two of snow to start the season would be nice!
At least I got to scope out all the upgrades I did to the Polaris this Fall and I'm glad to say it was worth the time and money.
