A Winter Prediction

Good for me...but bad for probably everyone else around here ;-). Mt Devon Meanderings left a comment on yesterday's post saying the number of days of fog in the fall predicts the number of snows in the winter.  I am so excited!  We've had a LOT of beautiful foggy mornings this fall :-D.  Here are some more shots from the other morning.



Usually Renny (front left - still hard to believe that short fat blond is her ;-) is up with the early risers, but apparently slept in the other morning.  Keebs, Willard, Graham, Blossom, Maisie, Lila head out at first light.  With Hank.  The rest meander out after their second cup of coffee.


Mia leads the way.


And then the boys.


Down across the bridge.  Chocula and Daniel stay together and Hershey heads "off road".  Into the burr patch.  Saint Tim and I picked burrs off topknots and from around chubby cheeks much of yesterday afternoon.  The access to the creek and Frog Pond?  Over for awhile!

Thank you for all the calendar orders!!!  We are going to try to have everything ready to ship in the next couple of days.  I'm working on the "over sea" shipping.  Looks like it might not be as bad as I'd feared :-).

Love the fog !
Mia looks like she has sweet chocolate lipstick on in that photo.
Must be such a beautiful think to be there mornings to see the pictured goings on in person.
Thanks for the share.

The fog is beautiful and VERY good for your complection!! The moist air is very good for your face!! Why few British women have wrinkles :-}}

I would love some pretty snowy days filled with knitting this Winter. I love the foggy sheep pictures!

Miha Giustina said...

These are some very neat pictures!
And I correctly identified all of the front and second row sheep:-). And then the (same) ones in the subsequent pictures, down to the 5th pic with Clover Belly.

I like foggy mornings too unless I need to go somewhere (that includes outside), I like my sunshine. Still no rain here, so no fog yet. Once again great pictures. Snow???? did you get your hay delievered yet?

I have never heard that about the fog--Now I know why I love it so much, and your photos too!

Dreaming said...

What an interesting predictor. I've not heard that one before. It will be interesting to test it out.

Judy said...

What wonderful photos! I wish that I could have been there to see the sheep :-)

Michelle said...

I sure like that bridge! When I saw the recent photos of Hank and a sheep on it, I thought of the old story of Billy Goat Gruff, with Hank being the protector from the troll. ;-)

Your sheep live on Park Place.
PS-I will let you know when we have our deepest snow and you can come up for a visit...and bring Saint Tim, Auntie Reg and her husband.

Jenny Glen said...

We must have a faster eco system than Kentucky 'cause we had fog last night, then snow by this morning!

Sheepmom said...

Love this series of pictures. Foggy, but not TOO foggy to see well ;-) The two boys (and one taking the scenic route) on the bridge is a fun one.

Christine said...

Off road. LOL

Alice said...

Love the Mia profile! Hershey is a unique sheep, he will discover on his own ;-)
I noticed the Jacobs all together in the family photo….. careful who they stand next to.;-)

Tiggeriffic said...

Oh how delightful~ Wish I could be there to see them all and give them cookies..
Awesome pictures~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Michelle said...

I have enjoyed our foggy mornings here in Kentucky. I have heard that it predicts our snow days. We shall see!

Sandra Morris said...

Lovely Photos!

Mary Ann said...

We've had a bunch of foggy days around here lately... I'm starting to get suspicious!

Our photos said...

Beautiful are your photos!
Greetings, RW & SK

Very pretty! The reason I am not partial to being IN fog is because my hair goes crazy, if I could have beautiful hair then I'd been happily in it for hours :) The sheep don't have to worry about bad hair days!!

Trish Henson said...

Idyllic...you do have a wonderful gift my friend.

Tracey said...

I have never heard that saying, but I like it. We have had several foggy mornings and we are due for some snow so maybe this will be the year.

Deb W said...

So your early risers are all bottle babies.....plus Willard. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

We had always heard it was the Fogs of August -

I LOVE all the colours of the beasties coming thru the fog. Well if the fog/snow thing is true we're dun fer. They are predicting a 'hard' winter here in N ID, whatever that means and we sure have had fog.

Far Side of Fifty said...

It will be interesting to see if the fog /snow idea is something to bank on! We have only had a day or maybe two of early morning fog:)

Ed said...

Excellent shots but the one of Mia is pure perfection..:-)))
