  • Predictions for winter, does the deer rut count?

    a theory about predicting the severity of winter weather.

    I have a wait-and-see attitude, but for fun, let’s consider some of the natural predictors that may or may not be of sound authority.

    The woolly worm is a favorite and the folklore says that winter will be a long cold one if they are predominately black and they start moving about before the first hard frost. 

    These seem ominous: If there are three severe fogs in June and July it means an early snow; and for every fog in August there will be a corresponding snow in winter.
