It’s almost Halloween. New York City is basking in its third week of Indian summer. And I’m beginning to fear for my annual ski trip. AccuWeather.com released its long term winter weather outlook today, calling for a warmer than average winter across most of the nation, and one of the top 10 warmest for the Southeast. The warm forecast spells more trouble for the region which is suffering through its worst-ever modern drought. As they take increasingly desperate measures to conserve water, the sole consolation of this unprecedented hot, dry spell may be lower wintertime prices for natural gas and heating oil. Another ironic, troubling turn on the road to a warmer world.
