The horses are also shedding furiously and growing pretty fluffy coats underneath, even in the 100+ degree SoCal heat, which is also a good indicator. ;)

Has anyone heard about the abundance of Meat Bees and the upcoming winter season? 

post #93 of 106

I've never even heard of a meat bee, but I don't believe that any animal or plant can predict the future.

Oh No!  You've dashed all hopes of a good winter.

Hmmm...is there a yellowjacket correlation to snow or just buying more coats?

I like my odds. :D

We had a major yellowjacket issue this summer. Put out traps for the first time in several years. Also, right now we have an invasion of whacko Pine Siskins, who are quite busy doing some kind of aerial combat. I'm more than happy to read into these occurrences.

Here's another theory.......

The lamer the top 25 list, the better the snow year

Have a BS in Met. There is a concept that plants/animals prepare for upcoming weather. Some short term others long term.

Apparently that's a super secret link I'm not allowed to see.

Edit, tried to fix the link. Fixed it in my post above

Our poor seasons correlate to plagues of snowboarders ... so we squish them whenever we can. They make a funny popping noise too :D

Just read a NWS forecast with the following summary:

....WET BELOW AND WHITE ABOVE....

Unintentional double entendres aside, this is a nice change and there should be some visual stoke out there.
