We better enjoy this hunting season as there will probably be alot of winter kill if this prediction comes true.

From the Daily Gleaner,

"The Environment Canada senior climatologist is expecting this winter to be colder and longer with more snow than last year."

Anyone could have made the same prediction? Last year was the easiest winter that I can remember. It doesn't take a senior climatologist to tell us that we're probably going to get more snow and winter will be longer. Last year was certainly an exception to the norm for our winters. Hopefully we can have a little snow on the ground for the deer season!

DNR reported our winter last year as being on the moderate to above moderate level, meaning that it was a fairly mild winter with a few large storms in the South of the province.

Anyway, I believe the Almanac before a climatologist, which predicts another mild winter

If memory serves me correctly they predicted a similar forecast for last winter. I think we will see a similar winter as last year.

here's a couple old wise tales that I follow and most times end up being true
- The hornet and wasp nests are low to the ground which normally means little to no snow
- Peanut trees(that is what I call them) have are not very abundand means low snow amounts

I am with you Fresh rub, I will take the Almanac anyday. They hit it bang on last year.

After reading this, i just realized that we have a wild berry tree in front of the house that has been loaded in the past when the winters were bad, this years crop has been very normal at best. I hope the old sayings hold true!

Well the wasp nest out back is low and the hornets nest is high so which is right?
