My uncle told me in previous years when a lot of acorns fell from his trees we had a lot of snow. Last year he hardly had to pick up any and this year he had to pick up tons of them, so let's hope his method is right.
an old wives tale also says (besides the acorn one) that if the leaves that fall off an oak tree are small then it will be a snowless winter, If the leaves that fall off in fall are HUGE look out TONS OF SNOW!! well i dont have any oak trees near my my house otherwise ide check them out. But i asked my dad about the leaves and the snow tale and he agrees with it. They have over 50 oak trees in their yard and he said the last time he saw any REALLY big leaves fall from any of those trees was back in december of 1990 where 22inches of snow fell in 24 hours gusts of winds over 70 mph he remembers that well because he got trapped in the storm 20 minutes from home and it took him 7 hours to travel that normal 20 minute ride
i cant take a day without my polaris Let alone a lifetime.
That's cool, i've never heard of the acorn or leaf size method. I hope its true because we've got tons of acorns covering the lawn, plus i've noticed the squirrels are moving like mad trying to pick up all that they can. We have an albino squirrel in the area, and it's the coolest looking thing. Completely white!
