I was talking with someone the other day, and they said that they had heard someone say that a very active storm season in the Atlantic Ocean generally meant that we would have a lot of snow in the winter. I don't know where they heard that, this was just the discussion that we had.

After hearing that, I started to consider what kind of activity we've had in the Atlantic this year. We've had 25 named storms. To put that in perspective, consider this: We used all of the planned names of storms this year, and then had to start using the Greek alphabet for more storm names. And - technically - we're not even done with hurricane season yet.

Now the question is: Will we have snow this year?

I mean, we tend to see a few days of flurries, but we don't always see a lot of accumulation of it. Just a little bit. Will this year be different? Is there some scientific reasoning behind the idea that a more active hurricane season would indicate a colder winter with more snow? Or, is that just an old legend?

I really don't mind not seeing much snow. Yes, it can be a neat sight, but I can do without it. You may remember from previous posts that I've done, that I prefer warmer temperatures. That's why I'm quite content here in East Texas.

So, I'll ask again: Will we have snow this year? And, if we do, will it be more than usual?
