Thunder in winter, according to old wives' tales, can mean:
*snow within 7-10 days
*a colder than usual February
*frost in April or May
*a summer drought
*cold weather is on the way

So, take your pick--I prefer the snow within 7-10 days over late frost or drought anytime.
When I stepped out on the porch at 5 a.m., it was clear as a bell and the stars looked so close. But in the distance I could hear traffic on the interstate 15 miles away, a sure sign of rain here. Usually. Or maybe I'm making up another old wives' tale?
