West Virginians Should Expect Extra Cold And Snow This Winter According To The Farmers Almanac

It may be hard to imagine cold weather after the hot summer we’ve just come through, but winter will come again before we know it…and this year, the Farmer’s Almanac predicts West Virginia will see cold, ice, and snow at or above-seasonable levels for 2020-2021.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

So bring it on, Winter! We’ll take your extra cold and snow…especially if it keeps the tick population at bay next summer. (True story: cold weather won’t kill ticks, exactly, but it will cause them to emerge later in the spring, delaying their life cycle and functionally reducing their population!)
