What Will This Winter Be Like?

Ginnie BakerThere are several different opinions on what this coming winter will be like, from mild to very cold.

I’m no expert, but I’d say we’re in for a very harsh winter here in Bellville based on my humble observations.

The squirrels, chipmunks and other critters are raiding the bird feeders and burying the sunflower seeds everywhere.

The woodchuck, deer and rabbits are munching all the apples that are falling from the over-loaded apple trees. I’ve never seen the trees with so many apples!

And the oak trees are loaded with acorns; I gather them each year to feed the squirrels in the winter. I went out yesterday to do some gathering and gave up after 10 minutes because I was being pelted in the head with falling acorns. LOL!
