My children and I saw the neatest thing on T.V. last year and decided to give it a try. You take a persimmon off of a tree and cut open the seeds. If the shape inside the seed appears to look like a fork your winter will be mild, if the shape resembles a knife, then it will be so cold it will cut through you like a knife, if the shape is of a spoon you can expect an abundance of snow....well I'm off to buy a snow shovel. You know what they say "The early bird gets a cleared walkway" or wait..is that the worm?
