The individuals who are always on hand to predlct tn open winter are not go numerous hh they were a few years ago. .Heveral liard winters with plenty of snow have rather put a Unniper on wenther proj?nosiicator8. It lias been several years sinco Michigan has enioyed an old-fashioned open winter. A nice open winter would be a good joke on the coal combinatlon. It is possible they muy be outwitted in that way. Hope so.
