It’s August 1st and the month of fog watching has begun!
In old Farmer’s Almanacs it was written that the amount of foggy days in August will be a signal for how many days of snowy weather that there will be during the winter.
Last August I watched the fog and since I have a small valley here, there would be mornings where I had fog on the east side of the house without any on the west side. My accounting was not very good, I was unclear if I should count fog that lasted for an hour after sunrise or fog that lasted til 10am. One thing for sure, I noticed more fog than a typical August and that this winter had more snowy weather than typical.
The experimentalist in me is curious if it was a fluke or if the Old Farmer’s Almanac really had something. So I am back at it again and if any of you would like to follow along I would love to hear how your winter forecast looks.
