    I copied this from The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2006:

    September and October will be exceptionally mild, with very warm periods in early and mid-September. Rainfall will be near normal in the east and below normal in the west.

    Old Farmer’s Almanac brags on their 80% correct predictions!

    There is a tradition that has begun.

    2004 Planning Meeting – Rain
    2004 Event Day – Sunny

    2005 Planning Meeting – Rain
    2005 Event Day – Sunny

    2006 Planning Meeting – Rain
    2006 Event Day – ?????

    We’ve had periods of rain every time we’ve had a meeting and awesome weather for the Event Day.

    No worries. :flag:

    Early Sept in New England typically has the finest weather of the year in this ever changing climate zone. For a few weeks we actually rival San Diego for the best weather in the country. They on the other hand, have that type of weather year round 😮

    This may be the first year EVER that I hike into November! :beer:

    So long as that white, cold, slippery junk stays to a minimal.:angry:

    It would be nice to finish my 48’s… on Madison… on my 148th birthday! 😮

    Hey Frodo!!

    Hey Madison,

    Get yourself some Crampons, snowshoes and some warm winter clothes. Jen and I will hike ANYWHERES you want this winter. Youll finish in no time. We just got Jim a little taste of it this past winter and he is now nibbling. It will be fun. C’mon, whatcha say?!?! 😉 😆 😆

    Brian

    P.S. And just think of this…..it will be nice to drive home and snuggle up with your man after a cold days hike 😛 😀

    You don’t step on Superman’s cape.
    You don’t talk to your pitcher during a no-hitter.

    You don’t jinx the weXXXXX by mentioning it.

    Someone quickly throw salt over their shoulder. 😀

    Jay… 😀 !!

    Just breath buddy, I post the Farmer’s Almanac weather prediction each year, just to temp fate. 👿

    Cal is on to something… 💡
    … there is an ominous correlation between the planning meeting weather and the event weather.

    Okay, a little salt won’t hurt either. Maybe eye of newt and wing of bat, too?!:wink:

    My money is on sunshine!! :beer:

    The first thing that comes to mind is the scene with Cam Neeley from “Dumb and Dumber” 😀 Too funny!

    I predict that nothing but clear weather will come of this “curse” that has bestowed upon “Newhampshire” AKA Brian. 😛
    He is, after all, signed up with the good fortune of the crew on Mt Garfield!…..that’s ME! :flag:
    And I shall bring forth the sunshine up from Cape Cod for the day!

    Curses begone!
