Tony Crocker did a quickie analysis about how a mild El Nino 
correlates with snowfall. Specifically he looked at 5 seasons that 
had a MEl reading for Aug/Sep as this year.

In short, no correlation at all. As he says later in that thread:
"The problem is that mild El Ninos are not a good snow predictor 
compared to strong El Ninos or even mild La Ninas."

Discuss at your leisure.
OK, back on your heads.
