If the Lions win 4 games our winter is suppose to be severe. Over the last 40 years this forcast has been more accurate than the weatherman. No way will that happen this year so I am looking forward to a mild winter and playing golf every month.

Bring it on! This is Michigan. I cast my vote for a Winter Wonderland with a couple of zinger storms tossed in for some snuggly days and nights. Enough of this dreary rainy stuff. This is not Seattle! We had a beautiful Autumn, now lets has a lovely winter.

Yeah, Bill. You didn't really tell us anything here. The only thing you forecasted was the next week to ten days. You hint around that we might see snow like last year but don't actually forecast anything. Why not title it Bill Steffen's Nov. 13 to Nov. 23 Forecast?

I bet in March, we'll get the MOST accurate forecast for winter '08/'09.

Where's the 08-09 forecast? I guess WoodTV 8 is stretching for top stories if they can't even deliver on a headline!

If the Lions win 4 games this year, hell will freeze over.

apparently the guy who is running the web page, or the one who is writting the article left out that they will be posting more information this afternoon and that this will be aired tonight at 6PM.
Bills blog has the information stating that more is to come.
anybody else think the website sucks now.

One job where you can be wrong, still have a job the next day and a paycheck at the end of the week.

Actually, that pretty much sums up Michigan weather 8 to 9 months out of the year!

How about just answering a few SIMPLE questions...

Will we need to pull out the shovel OR the snowblower?

Should we get All-Season Radials OR Snow Tires?

Should we put snow blades on our wipers?

Should we pull out the snow brush/ice scraper or just find a new place to park our car?

OR...

Should we just pack up & move to FL or AZ?

Much simpler!
