Monty what are your analogs for the winter? I've seen these years been mentioned on a couple other forums: 1962-63, 1967-68, 1970-71, 1980-81, 1984-85, 1985-86, 2005-06, 2007-08 and 2008-09.

Makes last winter look kinda average then i guess

High solar yes.

Wouldn't it be something to be able to skate on the local lakes two years in a row! (In this day in age)

Current PDO values have gone negative for july and August -0.5 and -0.68 respectively. For comparison, last years values for the same time frame were-1.06 and -0.68- after that they trended positive (barely) until June of this year. I'm interested to see how September this year trends.
