Do you guys look for signs of winter, as in how bad or mild winter might be. I kinda do, as Iíve heard of several ways or myths on what winter may bring. Farmers almanac was watched by my Grandpa and I remember my Dad saying a few things that would indicate what type of winter it will be. Does anybody else believe anything indicators?
>Today I saw a Wooly Worm, which my Dad would say The wider the brown strip(see pic). The milder the winter.
> Lots of Acorns meet and snowy winter
> Squirrels tails bushy meet a hard snowy winter.
>I watch a guy in the Upper Peninsula that does private forecasts and he does a prediction every year (see pic). He admits,
and donít put a whole lot of weight on it but does one every fall.
> Horses and Cattle with heavy coats mean hard winter.
I would say strip on Worm is wide.
Everything else I see here would indicate a average or hard winter. Lots of acorns this year. Cattle are starting heavy coats already, John Dee states average winter in his prediction.
