The Long Ranger
I noted earlier how the squirrels seemed more active this fall, how their fur was thick and it turned whiter earlier than normal. That would seem to indicate a harsh winter is ahead. The squirrels. They know.
On the other hand, there's a big indicator this winter will be milder than normal. I bought a new pair of boots a couple weeks ago. The boots are in a box, in a closet. They weren't cheap. People who spend time outside in the winter know the value of a good pair of boots. With my luck, my investment will remain in the box, and it won't pay off this winter.
I'm okay with that.
