    i have nticed more and more spiderwebs this week than last. this is usually a good indicator that ol man winter is on the way:eek:, or at least a frost.
    all the hickory nuts have fallen and the second sweet corn crop has way more husk than the first
    oh well nothing we can do about it:D

    I hope that you are right. I don't like the 100+ temps.

    A lady told me the same thing about the spider webs last summer. Funny thing about that is last winter was one of the warmest on record here!

    Sounds like its time to make a move.....I dont blame you. I like cool weather, but I wouldnt live anywhere near a real winter climate.

    If spider webs are a true indicator of an early winter, we must be going to have a really hard one! I have more spiders, and webs, this year than I have ever seen here. I like the winter months, I can easily put on enough clothes to stay warm, but I can't legally take off enough to get cool!

    I have to disagree about the spider web thing. Soon as warm weather hits the spiders (and their webs) flourish. That's when I have to bust out the bug spray and there's no relief till winter comes. Same as with the rest of nature. This is the first I've heard of folks complaining of the opposite. But then there's plenty I still have to learn.

    I sorta have the opposite view. A hot summer day is nice, but I couldn't possibly live where that was the norm. Too cold outside? Put on some warm clothes. Too hot outside? Shut up and suffer...
