By the way, if anyone on here is good at singing and playing some kind of instrument, it would be awesome to have this recorded! All credit would be given to the everyone involved, with respect to their roles. Leighbugs, you mentioned you sing and play piano? Perhaps you could do it? :D

A long long time ago
I can still remember
How our winters used to make me smile
And I knew every single year
We’d have at least a little cheer6
‘Cause it would snow for a little while

But winters come and it has died
My hopes were up but the models lied
Bad news all together
We’re stuck in this warm weather

I still remember the good old days
When at the falling snow I’d gaze
But the weather turned to its own ways
And that day our winter died
So

Bye, bye Mr. Arctic High
Maybe see you back next winter and again we will try
But until then I’ll hope that spring is warm and dry
Singin’ winter cancel winter goodbye
Winter cancel winter goodbye

Did you hope we’d have some fun
And do you think winters yet to come
If the experts tell you so?
Do you believe only when you see?
All the snowfall on the roads and trees?
And can you help me to enjoy this warm breeze?

For I know that its not ending soon
‘Cause I saw the Global news at noon
The forecast crushed my dreams
Not a flake in sight it seems

All the snowy hopes have turned to dust
This was biggest fail and winter bust
But I knew I was out of luck
The day that winter died
I started singin’

Bye, bye Mr. Arctic High
Maybe see you back next winter and again we will try
But until then I’ll hope that spring is warm and dry
Singin’ winter cancel winter goodbye
Winter cancel winter goodbye

Now in recent years the cold has been unknown
‘Cause the Arctic is dead in a warming zone
But, thats not how it used to be

When the winters came with lots of snow
With a high of minus ten below
What a score that came for you and me

Oh, and while the snow was falling down
The strong winds blew it all around
The blizzard was alive
But it just couldn’t survive

And now the climate is changing fast
The weathers dull and it looks to last
So we reminisced about the past
The day that winter died
We were singin’

Bye, bye Mr. Arctic High
Maybe see you back next winter and again we will try
But until then I’ll hope that spring is warm and dry
Singin’ winter cancel winter goodbye
Winter cancel winter goodbye

Wetter forever this lame weather
The rain fell hard its not getting better
A foot so far and falling fast

It soaked up all of our green grass
A stalled low and a warm airmass
With the jet stream setup this will last

Now the spring-like air has settled in
With more rain set soon to begin
We all got real upset
Oh, this winter we’ll forget

‘Cause La Nina tried and then it failed
The models now have since derailed
And all the pineapples prevailed
The day that winter died
We started singin’

Bye, bye Mr. Arctic High
Maybe see you back next winter and again we will try
But until then I’ll hope that spring is warm and dry
Singin’ winter cancel winter goodbye
Winter cancel winter goodbye

Oh, and everything was was all set in place
But the outflow couldn’t win the race
And this time the rain fell again

Oh come on cold be strong, cold be quick!
The snow is falling but it won’t stick
‘Cause its cold but not cold enough

Oh, and I as I watched the falling snow
Melt as it hit the ground below
No shovel needed now
Forget calling the plow

And as the flakes fell fast they turned to rain
The climate here is really lame
But I knew we would see the flame
The day that winter died
I was singin’

Bye, bye Mr. Arctic High
Maybe see you back next winter and again we will try
But until then I’ll hope that spring is warm and dry
Singin’ winter cancel winter goodbye
Winter cancel winter goodbye

I am guy with the winter blues
‘Cause nothing good is in the news
So I just went and hid away

I had hoped for an epic storm
But the temperatures were way too warm
And all the experts said the snowstorm wouldn’t come

And in the streets the children cried
On the forums it was a model ride
But not a word was spoken
Our hearts have all been broken

Still the three men I admire most
Are Monty, Tyeping, and Wetcoast
Well their still here but the arctic's toast
The day that winter died
And we were singin’

Bye, bye Mr. Arctic High
Maybe see you back next winter and again we will try
But until then I’ll hope that spring is warm and dry
Singin’ winter cancel winter goodbye
Winter cancel winter goodbye

That was a huge undertaking , super long song but a great one, and you nailed it! Bravo! You got me beat with one that's for sure. But I also have another one up my sleeve which I'm saving for awards night, if we have one,it's been pretty slow around here lately, a lot of glum faces lately, maybe this weekend will have a nice surprise for us and raise Hound's spirits.
A Stanley Cup and 2 feet of snow would be nice
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

Historic cold on tap for Feb in the Eastern CONUS. All signals point towards a mild and dry Feb here...2010 redux.

Have you ever thought about working in a hospice? With the happiness you spread, people would be dying to listen


+16 degrees and sunshine for 2 weeks would cheer up many here! :D

Long range has fallen apart. Started with the Euro ensembles and now the disease is hitting the GFS ensembles. :x :x :x

Now that's funny although I do appreciate Mr Wetcoasts honesty, I'm starting to think he enjoys pissing on all our campfires all the time

If next winter is a La Nina, which it very well could be, I'd expect to see it be our turn.

I think I'd take the chance on a neutral Winter.

Even neutral, I still think it could be our turn. I know I said this for this winter, but I've got to be right eventually? ;) :lol:

I'm still thinking the beginning of Feb might deliver something before things warm up and the East gets their long overdue blast.
