Windshield Oklahoma - A Spoon In The Persimmon Seed

As you can see the persimmons on this tree have already shirveled up.  We usually have a lot of persimmons but not this year.  Like all the crops this year it was scarce.
We were able to check a persimmon seed and we found a spoon just like last year.  A spoon means lots of snow.

  The spoon symbolizes a shovel.  A fork means a light snowy winter and a knife means extreme cold.  The cold wind will cut through you like a knife.  I'd rather have a spoon than a knife.
For more clues to help forecast our winter weather check out this article from The Farmers Almanac.
I've already got the wood pile stocked up for the weekend.
Have a great weekend, stay warm and I hope your team wins.

The weather people are saying a dry winter, I tend to follow what the signs of nature say!
