    Tell me if you guys have heard this before...

    If there is a heavy 'crop' of acorns, there will be alot of snow the following winter.

    Maybe some of you guys who do greenwork in the off-season could shed some light on this. I'd also be interested in any other wives-tale/ almanac style predictors.

    Only way I have of predicting how much snow we will have is by how many problems I have.The fewer drivers I have,and the more equipment that breaks,the more it snows. :D

    Oh....and the other one would be whatever the so called weathermen predict....it will be the opposite. :realmad:

    Cardoctor is the harsh winter for the whole northeast? What about NY that has only 2 seasons anyway(summer/winter). Just curious as to how many plow jobs i should take on.

    take as may as possible
    if we get hammered with snow
    sub out what you cant handle
    if we dont get much at least you made some $$$$$

    Ive heard all the major news outlets in CT predicting a harsh long cold winter. The farmers almanac for the Northeast region predicts a fairly harsh winter with snows through mid April.

    it must be a doozie of a winter coming, we have 10" long pine cones from our Colorado Blue Sruce tree. It has never coned before and it is about 20 years old payup
