August is upon us and the signs of a bad winter are, too. Since time began, some folks have predicted the severity of seasons by using the signs mother nature gave to them. One is the color of the woolly worms. This one I saw towards the end of July. Almost all black, indicating a very cold winter. If he were brown, or had wide brown rings, the less severe winter would be forecast to be. These huge hickory nuts fell to the ground in July. Another sign, to be prepared for the colder times. Maybe you have seen some signs? Feel free to share them!
