If leaves fall early a mild winter
if leaves fall late a cold snowy winter should be the opposite way around I think
I love weatherlore! Before long (August & September) this blog will be filled with folks hoping for a cold, snowy winter. Looking for any sign that’ll tell us that nature is preparing for a “good” winter. Also, by then we’ll be so sick and tired of the heat that just the thought of cooler temperatures coming soon offers relief. I love it when this happens. It’s almost like the FA family come back home. Some of the best signs that we look for are the wooly worms, foggy August mornings, acorn production, and squirrels bushy tails along with huge spider webs. Mother nature gives us clues we just have to be smart enough to catch em :). Oh my I almost forgot one of the main ones we like….the fruit that has spoons or forks or knives in them. Persimmons I think. How can I miss that one? We get excited when someone finds and opens them to see how many spoons or shovels we see which indicates lots of snow!!
Snowlover, I agree. I love it when we all come back to the forum this time of year and start sharing our predictions. It makes the summer more bearable somehow. Right now, it is about 100 degrees, and I think it goes without saying that I am sick of it! We are watching Christmas movies to get through the rest of the heat wave.
Keep those predictions coming, everyone!
I have been annoying meteorologist around here about this winter I can’t wait
I have been noticing some Good signs, Average signs and Brutal signs for the Winter I think I’ll be in a equal chance winter I may have some storms and cold and I may have average weather and some mild, dry weather.
Those are all signs of a winter being harsh and here is what I have experienced and What I feel about some.I do agree with Long Hot Summer means Cold Winter which had been going on here in Washington.Moths, Spiders, and other insects are going crazy which is 100 percent true of a bad winter.Bees building nest low means a bad winter my step dad had ran into one while delivering mail in side the mailbox.Birds are migrating early surely means winter cold and stormy they should not have any other reason to leave early.The Woolly Warm has a Mixed Black and Brown meaning Average winter.
Lots of ants and they are marching in a line also around my area meaning the winter will be hard.
Raccoon’s have been thick but I have not looked much on the black rings.
And final fruits are going nuts this year many of them.
Fruits are going nuts :) That’s too funny. I’m surprised that you are seeing so many signs so soon. Where do you live? Here it’s just plain ole HOT (VA) Around here in the mid atlantic states we usually start to see signs around September (although we start looking around August) :) Thanks for sharing. I think that it’s very interesting to know how each part of the country has different times & ways that Mother Nature indicate the strength of fall/winter.
