The eastern part of the US has experienced unusually cool temperatures of late which makes me think about what might be in store for this fall and winter. In fact, many people are writing to ask. The question will be answered next week when we release our winter weather predictions for the US and Canada. In anticipation of our forecast, one only has to look around to see what the signs of nature are saying in your backyard.
Here are a few indictors of a rough winter:
Heavy and numerous fogs in August are a sign of a rough winter. How are the fogs in your area?
Unusual abundance of acorns – mine are dropping with gusto. What do you see?
Squirrels gather nuts early. Where there are acorns, there are squirrels.
Spiders spinning larger than normal webs.
We are only entering the time when we look for the signs of winter. Here’s a more extensive list.
