Arctic Outbreak/Snow Contest

Postby Catnip » Fri Nov 17, 2017 3:17 pm

Please predict when you think the next Arctic outbreak with snow (be it modified or full on blast) will be.

I will stick with my December 17 prediction.

Oh, almost forgot the year... 2017 ;)

I'll go with Christmas Eve. (Note: My son turns one year old on Dec. 6, the same day the Arctic air arrived last year. In the months leading up last winter, I was hoping my kid would be born during a blizzard. Well, I was close).

I was torn between the 10th and 11th, but I like odd numbers.
