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!

As Brian chants “Sun, blue skies and warm weather… Sun, blue skies and warm weather… Sun, blue skies and warm weather… Sun, blue skies and warm weather…” 😆 .

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:FrodoParticipantJuly 18, 2006 at 11:14 pmPost count: 335
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 😮dirt_girlJuly 19, 2006 at 9:21 pmPost count: 303
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! 😮
Welcome back! Sorry, I keep forgetting to welcome you home!!
Got any good hiking stories??? 😀New HampshireJuly 19, 2006 at 10:13 pmPost count: 168
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?!?! 😉 😆 😆
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 😛 😀Sherpa JohnJuly 20, 2006 at 3:08 amPost count: 71
SO long as New Hampshire is hiking… it’ll rain for sure. 😥Jaytrek57ParticipantJuly 20, 2006 at 1:21 pmPost count: 263
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!

Maybe we should send Brian out west for that weekend. Where do you work again???? :flag:BrownieJuly 25, 2006 at 5:16 pmPost count: 34
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!
