Can anyone point me to some good projections of winter weather 40-70 years out? I'm not able to follow the math used in the few reports I've found. All I want to do is hedge my bets when planting fruit and nut trees(50%), the nitrogen fixing trees(50%) reaching full maturity isn't as high a priority. So will a future forest in the Ozarks look more like Wyoming or Mississippi?
What was this young adult (or children's) novel I read about a girl growing up in Appalachia or the Ozarks? It might have actually been two different novels. [more inside]
