MILD OR BAD?




 

 

This hornet’s nest was found on the ground in Lizzie M. Wright’s yard in Holbrook Town in Maykind. Her grandfather told her if the hornets build on the ground it will be a mild winter, but if they build up high it will be a bad winter. She said, “This seems more logical to me than the other way around.” In last week’s Mountain Eagle, a photo of a hornet’s nest on the ground was accompanied by the folk-lore that a low hornet’s nest means a bad winter.
