Do you guys think in our lifetime that the brutal winter of 1917-1918 or the frigid winter of 1976-1977 could be repeated in the next coming years? I have done research on the winter of 17-18 and the stories are phenomenal. That year featured a weak la Nina, coupled with a negative PDO that combo seems to be favor chilly winters. Again the same obs, are present in the winter of 1976-1977, what interests me is that both of these winters came off the heels off 3-5 extremely mild winters in the lower 48.
a new ENSO pattern is evevolving and the PDO is entering a new phase, keep in mind we have experienced 2 pretty mild winters 2011-2012, 2012-2013. Right now we are stuck in the neutral, Nina pattern from 99-03.
What everyone should keep an eye out for is the solar cycle, we hit the solar maximum for this cycle in May 2013, which was the weakest maximum in some years, solar cycle 25 is set to begin around 2017. If one examines current trends, You can see solar cycle 24, closely follows solar cycle 5. Solar cycle 5 occurred from 1798-1810 All these cycles run on 11 year averages, if your pair these with the -PDO, -QBO, no doubt we are in for interesting times.

I have done alot of reading on winters and summers in the 1980s, and have noticed quite a few similarities of the last few here in the US. Many people compared the winter of 2010-2011 to the latter part of the 1980s some breaking records from that time. This summer has been absolutely bone dry here in east central Illinois, some local farmers are saying this almost as worse than the summer of '88.
Then there is the heatwave of the summer of 1980, which again featured extremely hot/ humid air, and major drought conditions! Again eerily similar! My father actually told me stories about the winter of 1981-1982, he worked for a tow trucking company, and clearly remembers a day when the wind chill was what he recalls -50. He claimed semis were frozen on the side of the road, because diesel would freeze and the trucks would lock up.
What I thought was really interesting was, he Said the following winter of 82-83 was exceptionally mild and remembers not much snow and seasonably warm!
So what do you guys think? Midwest seen an extremely harsh winter 2010-2011. Could 2011-2012 be the no show winter? Something to think about
Also, didn't know where to post this, it's historical so I stuck it here
