Winter: Cold and Icy? Mild or Snow

Winter: Cold and Icy? Mild or Snow

“According to old-timers, persimmon seeds can be used to predict the severity of winter weather. When cut into two pieces, the persimmon seed will display one of three symbols. A knife shape will indicate a cold icy winter (where wind will cut through you like a knife). A fork shape indicates a mild winter. A spoon shape stands for a shovel to dig out the snow.” This persimmon seed was found in Gorman. Photo: Sheila Hickox (We think it looks like shoveling snow. How about you?)
