When I walked outside yesterday morning I said one thing. "Uh oh". I think that says it all. As a summer lover, that's the only true reaction. So is this normal, or is it a bad sign for the upcoming winter? I asked my favorite meteorologist that very question.

Alan Kasper, who in my opinion, is the best there is anywhere tells me that this cold spell is happening because of a jet stream bringing in some cold air.

So, is this some indication of what we're in for this winter? Alan says you can't connect this weather with how our winter weather will be. He says too many things have to happen and you really can't predict how the winter will be just yet.

Thank goodness, because if this week was an indication, I wouldn't be too happy!
