What do you think you will get?
We didn't have a winter either. But also not much rain at all for past couple years in this area. No good downpoues.Winter was a write off last time. Didn't get too cold, might have snowed or sleeted once or twice.
This year, this winter? Farmers almanac predicting milder and drier for 2020/2021.
Pigs gather sticks? What for I wonder.I haven’t seen any fuzzy caterpillars yet (woolly bear - Pyrrharctia isabella). I’ll let you know when I do. Corn has extra husks though, I noticed that when my sweetcorn started getting ready...
Here is a common question this time of year. There is an old folklore about caterpillars. What does the coloring of a woolly bear mean? I have seen some where they are mostly brown. Doeswww.farmersalmanac.com
I can attest to that. Since I am only two miles from work, I really don't care. Assuming we are back working in the office by that time.Flip a coin.
I live in Missouri.
Mother Nature will change her mind several times in a day.
Nah!Winter? Temps may drop below 40°F for a few days in December and mosquitos will vanish until February.
I'll emerge from hibernation when the temp gets above 72°F, also in February .
P.S. We have had rain everyday for the last 2 weeks. For those that crave rainfall, that's how you grow mold and mud. Wanna buy some? Better get it before the 99°F weeks in August bake it to a nice flaky crust.
About winter… It took me a few days to remember where the details of the fuzzy caterpillar could be found. I found them in the 1st FoxFire book. I dug out my copy today and re-read the “weather signs” section.Pigs gather sticks? What for I wonder.
I'll make a deal.
