Signs of
Winter

Few
things concern the gardener more than the first warning signs of
winter. At The Old Farmer’s Almanac, we employ scientific disciplines to predict the
weather
but also believe in keeping a close eye on
nature. The following are all considered traditional signs of a
severe winter ahead: 

  • Geese fly south at a high altitude.

  • Oak trees bear many acorns.
  • Chipmunks are abundant.
  • Lakes and rivers freeze later than usual.

  • Onions grow thicker skins than usual.

  • Squirrels are gathering a large supply of
    nuts.

  • Woodpeckers appear early.
  • Lots of berries.
  • Corn husks are thicker and stronger.

What’s
in store for your winter? For our Web site visitors, we have
provided two months of free weather forecasts.
