Its Official. Huge amounts of snow predicted for the East this winter.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

You saw it here first folks. Throw away your weather maps, predictions and guessing for the actual and predictable winter forecast for the East is in and it going to be a great year| Get those ski tuned, Dust and clean the cold weather gear and get ready;

 

Reported in the Columbus Daily newspaper for Ohio, home of "The" Ohio State Buckeyes, so you know its right we have the snow prediction for the East, and here it is.

 

The winter in the East is rated by the mast crop, What is that you say. Well let me tell you and I know you will be as excited as I am about the coming winter. Last year was a poor mast crop and a poor year for snow as they go together. This is a measurement, as we go into the fall, of all of the nuts falling to the ground. Mother nature knows the snow and does not provide much bounty if there is not going to be a lot of snow. This year, although the count is not completely finished we have a strong amount of nuts on the ground, including acorns and walnuts. So the prediction is for a very good winter for snow by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Buy some good wine, chop some wood and get ready for a very good snow year in the East.

 

You heard it here on Epic first!

No we can not.

 

The Old Farmer's Almanac says the same thing, so I was told by my favorite Portuguese friend. I hugged her several times.

 

Have seen no wooly bears yet this season, though, to check their bands.

 

(Wait.  Maybe the absence of wooly bears is a sign!!)

It doesn't work.  Here in New England last year we had a humongous mast.  Acorns fell and solidly filled up the ground.  Walking the driveway was like walking on ball bearings.  But after that mast, last winter was very very warm, and the snow that fell got melted out.  We had lots of mid-winter rain.  As anyone who skied here in NE last winter, we had an abysmal snow season.  

 

This year we seem to have another mast crop of acorns.  I didn't know this could happen two years in a row.  I got tired of pulling up neo-natal "mighty oaks" this last spring.  Guess I'll have to do that again.  I am getting better balancing on the ball bearings.  By May there were oaks growing up everywhere, solidly filling any un-mowed spaces.  Gardener's horror.

 

The chipmunks certainly benefit.

Too many holes in my yard.  Way too many.  I have not the heart to poison them.  So cute.

Love them, actually, but sheesh, I don't want them stealing my winter.

Chipmunk holes, hah!  I've got a woodchuck in my back yard.  A big hole (comparatively). But no garden, so he is welcome to stay.  It's an unusually blonde woodchuck.

HA! There's your mistake. You cannot just count acorns. You have to count all nuts😊

The bear was mid-sized, and hibernation-colored. 

 

(And I don't reveal marital secrets, except that yes, she's blonde.I

I had a Professor in music college who had such great ears (could hear and write down anything he heard) that we used to say he had calluses on them because they rubbed the ground when he walked.
