    I was just curious if anyone heard anything for this up coming winter for the NE. I know its early. The only thing Ive heard is the farmers are saying its gonna be mild, I hope not.

    Well except for the recent heat, it has been a pretty mild summer with a lot of rain. Maybe we will continue into the winter.

    I heard from a guy that does tree work he used an old tell tail sign of pine cones in trees for the past 25 years and been right on. The more pine cones the bigger the winter has to do with something in the trees. He said he has never seen so many pine cones in his life in the trees he has been in. Now I can't say it is proven or not but that is what I heard. I am preparing for a large one and if it comes short ohh well.

    i've heard something similar. my boss last year was saying (and he was right) that we wouldn't get much snow becuase there wasn't many acorns in the oaks.

    Nature takes care of itself. If there are more fruits, berries, pine cones on the trees the more snow we will get. If you see alot of stuff on the tops of the trees that is a pretty good sign of a harsh winter. Those are the only signs that I know of.
