Editor's note: The Herald-Mail invites readers to answer poll questions on www.herald-mail.com. Readers also may submit comments when voting. A sampling of edited reader comments will run on The Herald-Mail's Opinion page on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

The question posted Monday was: The Hagers-Town Town and Country Almanack predicts that winter weather will come early and last until late March. Which month do you think will bring the most snow?

Results: October, 3 votes (less than 1 percent); November, 45 votes (6 percent); December, 67 votes (8 percent); January, 384 votes (48 percent); February, 267 votes (34 percent); March, 30 votes (4 percent)

o "There will be no snow. Al Gore predicted it."

o "The Almanack predicts about the same thing almost ever year and they get lucky with their predictions about 25 percent of the time."

o "Only in this area could a fun poll question like this be turned into political ranting and raving. Come on, folks, lighten up. Maybe instead of spending so much time on your computers you should be out taking an active part in the political arena since it seems you are the authorities on so very many subjects. Maybe instead of laying blame, you could actively work to find solutions."

o "I doubt very much that we see any snow at all. We have all been told in recent years that our globe is warming. Therefore, no need to put away your gas grills. The 1963 "Top Secret" meeting at Iron Mountain (Google "The Iron Mountain Report") laid out this global warming myth as a way to control us using the climate crisis. I know those who trust our government will probably dispute the report."
