Many people believe it's going to be a very harsh winter over most parts of the country. Animals furs are very thick this year. Squirrels have started gathering food since August. Spider webs are strong and thick this year. What do you think the winter will brng? Robert NWDC10

Really??? I think just the opposite here. When I was a kid the lake by my house froze solid every year before Christmas, and we skated on it until well into March. For many years now, though, it barely freezes over at all. When it does, it's just a thin crust, melts quickly. No one has been able to go onto the lake in winter for a long time. Our winters here now have long periods of above-freezing temps. I sure don't remember that as a kid!
Those who want to do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse.

I'll agree with that...Chicago hasn't gotten nearly enough snow over the last few years (until, say, 2000?), and I want to see more more more more! That's why I love going home for winter break, Chicago winters are way better then Kansas winters!
