Out here in the middle of Kansas I have heard an old wives tale from many people to predict the amount of times it will snow in a season.

Whatever the date is of the first snow (accumulation is not necessary) is the amount of times it will snow in the season. For example, if the first snow is on the 15th there will be 15 snowfalls, again accumulation is not necessary.

The farmers here swear by this. I am keeping track this year to see if it holds true.
Last year I tried but lost track as winter seemed like endless snow.

Anyone ever heard of this before?
In the beginning there was the command line.

If that holds true and if we get our first snowfall of the season here in Sunny Charlotte, N.C. tomorrow on the 25th
We will have a record year to beat all years. :clapping:
