I heard a prediction yesterday from a somewhat reliable source. This winter is going to be a crazy, cold, long winter.
Did you ever read the Laura Ingalls Wilder book “The Long Winter”? The Native Americans warned the townsfolk that the winter would be bad. The birds left early and the beavers built dens two times the normal size.
Guess the prognosticator’s barn swallows left in September rather than October. And her jackass has grown an enormous beard and eyebrows. I wonder if she knows if the squirrel nests are bigger and thicker than normal?
As long as they keep the train tracks open during blizzards our shanty town will be alright.
