Folklore – Did you predict the extreme cold winter?
Article by February 2014 Newsletter, In The News; Kenneth Bargers 020114
The frigid cold temperatures to the start of winter reminded me of growing up and my Granny and Grandpa saying how cold the winter would be by the aches in their bones. Whether you call it folklore, myth, legend or tradition passed down through the years – many of our friends and family swear by their own “tried and true” method of predicting the weather.
The logical thing for all of us to do is listen to the meteorology professionals but its also fun to explore the folklore of weather. This month’s In The News features Folklore-Predicting the Winter Ahead kindly contributed by Ron Wilson of In the Garden with Ron Wilson.

So do you have that keen perception of predicting the weather? Have you heard about predictions by arthritis, fall plant production, animal activity, insects, number of frosts or the Farmer that can just feel the land and know what is ahead?
