It's pretty common knowledge that most animals (deer) are sensitive to barometric changes and chow down prior to impending storm fronts. But what about predicting what kind of weather we will have during the winter? I notice that all the squirrels around here have built their nests high in the trees this year. Does this mean that winter will be harsh with a lot of snow? What do animals know that we humans don't know? Are they really an accurate weather forecaster? I guess only time will tell.
