Autumn has barely begun, and I’m already thinking about winter. The Old Farmers Almanac predicts cold and snowy weather for much of the US and Canada. Some people are reporting an increase in the number of acorns they see. Which, according to folklore, may also be an indicator of harsh weather. Do you buy into such signs and portents, DeadSplinters? And plan accordingly? I have a neighbor who keeps me generously supplied with firewood. As long as I have dog food for Fanny and plenty of peanut butter, I’m confident we can survive whatever nature has in store.
