Shallow hibernators awoke during December warm-up
Winter has returned after a welcome warm-up in mid-December that lasted a couple of weeks. During that warm stretch some of our area hibernators that don't sleep so deep came out.
I first recognized it by my sense of smell one evening. Leaving for a basketball game in Worthington, the strong odor of skunk essence hit me as I stepped out the backdoor. Then, as I traveled Hwy. 60 southwest, I again picked up natures worst smell in the vicinity of Heron Lake as it easily entered the vent system of my Ford Explorer.
The skunks were out that night.

Farmers' Almanac or The Old Farmer's Almanac
I'm thinking, it seems I went over half my life not realizing there were two farmers' almanacs. It dawned on me the day I walked into a Barnes & Noble book store, wandered over to the magazine rack and saw the two different almanacs displayed, albeit a ways apart.
