Weather lore warns that every fog in October will bring a snow come winter. An old wives' tale tells that the more acorns that drop, the colder and snowier the winter will be. If this is even partly true, then there will be drifts aplenty in our area come holiday time. The fogs are thick and plentiful this year and the acorns falling on the barn roof sometimes sound like gravel being dumped.
