Another "brutally cold and snowy" winter on the way.

So ... long-range forecasting teams are predicting that this winter will be really cold and snowy. You know, like last winter.

Commence crying ... now!

Why is another brutal winter likely? Well, for a couple of reasons:

Primarily, the punishing weather is coming because of your bad behavior. I'm referring specifically to your naughty language, and the way you've been taking fivers out of your mom's purse. Did you think there would be no repercussions? Unbelievable. Obviously you've offended Thor, or something. (Not Science Buzz's own Thor, Thor the weather god. Well ... maybe also Science Buzz's Thor.)

Another big reason for the prediction is the angry girl-child herself: La Niña. As you probably know, La Niña is a cyclical weather pattern, originating in the Pacific Ocean off of South America. La Niña also treats the jetstream like a plaything, generally screwing things up for people.

So, you know, enjoy.

I scoff at this prediction. Most meteorologists/weather geeks couldn't forecast what they had for lunch yesterday. And even if this prediction is true (which I highly doubt) - I say: Bring it!
