Most of the Nation will be colder and wetter according to Farmer's Almanac. But for the Northwest it says:

"the Pacific Northwest (or is it “northwet?”) where indeed wet weather is almost a given during the winter months, the overall winter season could average out drier than normal."

That is good news in my book!

I hope we have a LONG fall of fabulous weather and a short and dry winter. But...I guess we'll just take whatever Mother Nature gives us...because really what choice do we have right?
