Littleton got a little taste of the coming winter on Oct. 30, as a pre-Halloween cold snap blew away the lingering warmth of summer.
The Independent isn't in the forecast business, but according to the Farmers' Almanac and its secret prognostication method, our region is in for “teeth-chattering cold” and “plentiful snow” this winter. However, another revered prognosticator — the Old Farmer's Almanac — predicts the opposite, using its own secret method to call for a warm, dry winter, not unlike last year's.
Either way, said Shelby Barr, the marketing coordinator for Colorado Home Realty on Main Street, she'll keep collecting and organizing warm winter coats, part of the company's annual coat drive.
“Days like today remind you why we do this,” Barr said, yanking out fuzzy parkas from bins in the company's lobby while a flurry of flakes swirled outside. “Nobody deserves to be left out in the cold.”
