Here in the Blue Ridge

By Susan Shipe

Here in the Blue Ridge mountains, part of the Appalachian Mtn Range, every fog in August means a snow in the winter. Folks put a big dried bean in a jar for the big fogs and a small bean for the lesser foggy mornings and then compare beans to snowfalls in the winter!

What a fun ongoing seasonal activity! Do the beans really match up throughout the seasons? How do they compare by the end...?!

Re weather lore personal

By Georgia Sowers

Re weather lore personal observations: here in Brenham TX 77833, about 3 weeks ago my husband observed a squirrel attempting to move our neighbor's cotton twine mop. The squirrel was able to transport the mop from the fence where it was hanging to a location of the squirrel's choice. Bob presumed the squirrel was stockpiling a warm home for the winter to come. And goodness the acorns are totally thick here and at our home in Clear Lake area of Houston TX 77059. Also, our pecans are slow in falling from the trees, and the leaves are still healthy on the trees. Our biggest problem in the garden areas right now is abundance of nut grass. Love your emails and the weather lore calendar and info, thank you!
