Postman Michael Gallagher says the fact that birds are singing and flowers are already coming into bloom doesn’t mean that we have escaped a harsh winter just yet.
In fact, Glenfin man Michael thinks freezing temperatures could be just around the corner.
“I know we have esc aped with a relatively mild winter but I think there will be a serious sting in the tail.
“People say that birds are singing and flowers are blooming so early but I think that’s a major sign of a late winter.
Michael, whose two books Traditional Weather Signs and Cures From A Bygone Age are still selling well, think s we will have a freezing February.
“I think that February could be very cold indeed and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a lot of snow.
“People are saying that once Christmas is over, we have turned the corner into Spring. I certainly don’t think that’s the case.
“I think we could have a number of cold snaps between now and March and even then it could be cold after that,” he said.
