Default For what it is worth

Maybe we will see an old fashioned maple season this spring. Defiantly an old fashioned fall here in Mid-Michigan .

I have read so many different guesses at this coming winter. The conclusion I have reached its either going to be above normal temps, below normal temps or even possible just normal temps.

I agree with 3rdgen. So many guesses and so many predictions it will be hard to figure which is closest until it's all ove.
That being said, a traditional season is on my wish list. Maybe even one similar to what I got last year, more freeze thaw cycles than any other year since I started in commercial scale in 2003.
