Well if we have any less of a winter than we did last year it won't get below freezing. We have had a couple of very mild winters in a row and you can sure tell by the mosquito population lol.

I've heard people saying it's gonna be another bad one around these parts.

Speaking of local professionals , there has been many a contractor in these parts who have threatened to install a window in the office of the long time local meteorologist..........lol

I have heard people say when there is a lot of berries (wild) it is going to be a hard winter. The berry's and wild fruit was a bumper crop and still berries on the trees/bushes.

Our chokecherry bush / tree has a bumper crop of berries on it as does some down the road from here. The farmers almanac mentioned colder than normal and little if any snow, I was starting to look for a new snowmobile I think I'll wait ha ha

Ours are always hard to predict. There's been a lot of bears in a couple cities here which they say is due to acorns falling early.
Last year my mulberry tree had dropped a lot of leaves at this time and it was mild. This year has been the opposite
