    I have never really believed in that type of forcast so I was surprised to hear that they have a 80% acuracy rating.

    The ines that I have seen this year were thick coated and almost all pure black. Sounds like a cold winter, Bummer...but I have my supply of pellets so bring it on. :lol:

    A cold early fall, followed by a brief warming trend. November and December is much colder.
    Then a mid winter thaw at the end of February, but colder again for a while with spring in the
    air during the longer days. April finally brings some warmth.

    Don't rush it, enjoy it!

    I like squirrel's tails for forecasting.

    Easy, a thick bushy tail means a severe winter ahead, while a wimpy tail means a mild winter to come.

    Up here their tails are ready for an old fashioned, north country winter.

    Keep warm, enjoy your stove!

    Your right! The tails of the squirrels that came from the ones in my neighbor's freezer are very bushy!! ;-P
