    The wooly bears are red and pink polka dots here. I'm expecting frogs from the heavens.

    The farmer's almanac this year did say much colder than normal...

    I would like to point out that they said the same thing last year for us up here. And, I remember 3 weekends in January where the temperature got up to 50 degrees. It was considerably warmer than ususal.

    It is difficult to predict winter. I would put more stock in the weak El Nino, but it all depends on where the jetstream goes.

    If we have an El Nino, will Dan Rather come back to the news, with his "we are all going to die" music, doing "El Nino updates?"

    70's in CT today and tomorrow. Sounds like a re-run of last year! Saw two guys with plows on their trucks already! I dont even remember where mine is. I think burried behind the garage somewhere! I'll have to dig it out soon, just in case.

    Unfortunately I live in New England, so anything the meterologists say is worthless!!! 60 degrees one day, and 6 inches of snow the next - IT HAS HAPPENED!

    Acorn drop isn't that reliable. Depends on the variety of the acorn tree. Some oaks take a couple years for the acorn to grow and thus you get cyclical mast crop. Deer hunters love to find the big mature oak....and it's different between black oak, white, oak, willow oak, red oak.....yada yada yada that is dropping acorns because it lets you set up over a plentiful natural food source. the last two years around here there wasn't much in the way of acorns. The year before, it was crazy in the woods. Acorns constantly falling.

    I know Gypsy Moths had a BIG effect on the acorn crop locally and that would have NOTHING to do with Winter temps.

    BTW
