We have heard that we are in for a cold winter this year. Here is what the Farmers Almanac says about this winter in the deep south:
Winter will be much colder than normal, with temperatures one to two degrees below normal, on average. The coldest periods will occur in mid-December, early and late January, and mid-February. Precipitation will be below normal in the north but well above normal in the south. Snowfall will be above normal in the north, with the snowiest periods in late December and early January.
So far we have had two nights of hard freeze, one night getting close to 20 degrees. This past weekend we built our first fire since bringing the babies home. They liked watching it. It kept us all toasty until bedtime.
