•Not many woolly worms were spotted, but those seen were black on the ends and brown in the middle, indicating a harsh beginning and end of winter with a mild spell in between.
•Hornets nests were built on the ground, indicating cold weather ahead.
•Heavy foliage and mast crops indicate a colder, harder winter.
•Five early morning fogs were counted in August, with only two of them heavy. This points to five snows for the winter, with two heavy snows.
