" The record coldest October was in 1925 with a mean of 42.9. That October had 4 days in a row with highs in the 30’s with one day of a high of just 30. There was also 7.5” of snow that October."
Iirc, 25/26 went on to be a cold and snowy winter in Michigan.
"The most snow fall of 8.4” fell in 1967 (the winter of 1967/68 there was just 55..1” of snow fall)"
Then there's 67-68, the year following the big winter/storm of '67 which would argue that a snowy October is NOT a good omen.
If there is not a set correlation between Oct and the following winter, all things being equal I would still vote "NO" to a snowy October. If for no other reason, than to save the snow for when it counts and can stick around longer.
October '89 snowstorm and more recently Oct 12th 2006 come to mind. Neither following January was worth anything in the snow dept. at least for SEMI.
The fog was legit as soon as I got a few miles west of the burbs yesterday morning. Glad you got to see him play and WIN. I went in July and he K'd as a pinch-hitter in the 9th and they lost that game. Gotta luv our x-ways here. All 4 freeways around this region since I moved here two years ago are either still in major replacement mode or have been closed for repairs at various times. I am fortunate to not need them for work commuting, but weekend activities are a real hassle too because all the people have to take the next best surface road alternatives, so they are all crowded too ofc. Looks like they are getting close to finishing the 275 rebuild project (the nearest to Canton) and it will be like 5X faster to get to/from anywhere in the Metro when they do. Hoping it's before winter. Holding onto this great wx would be a big plus in that regards.
