The Farmers' Almanac says one more winter storm to go.

So far this year, the folksy publication has been pretty accurate, but for the sake of our sanity, I hope it's dead wrong this one last time.

After all, spring is only 13 days away. And the kids really need to get out and prepare for spring sports with lacrosse due to start any day now.
