In Reverse

Let's review...

Regular readers know I feel long range weather forecasting is a waste of time and a scam.  Weather patterns change every month.  Anyone who thinks they know what the upcoming winter will be like is taking a guess.

Regular readers know I do an entry every late winter about skunks.  Active skunks show spring is right around the corner.

Well, the skunks are busy beavers once again, fattening up for the winter.  It seems like they're scurrying about a bit earlier than normal.  That would seem to indicate winter will be here soon, it will be colder and snowier than normal, and it will be a long one.

I trust the skunks more than the people trying to convince you that they know what will happen four months from now.
