Is it possible to predict how hard a Winter will be?


Can someone predict what a Winter will be like based on a wooly worm's color, or the size of acorns. It's been said that a black wooly worm means a hard Winter, and a brown wooly worm means that there will be a mild Winter, while the bigger the acorn is then the harder the winter will be.

    "Climatologists?" Which ones, the liars at East Anglia? Or have you forgotten about "climategate".

    I would think that the animals could give us an indicator of the weather. They can sense from natural instinct the change in weather. The wooly worm was used in the midest as an indicator. You never know!

    We also had a weather man (Met Office employed) called Michael Fish, who confidently told a woman on the phone 'We don't have hurricanes in Britain' hours before one struck from the South West and ripped across southern England in the mid-80's!

    Many berries - notably brambles - in the South East were spoilt, never properly grown due to lack of sunshine and excess rain during what passed for summer around London and Essex (no doubt elsewhere in the region). It might be 'where's the birdie?'
