ABSTRACT
THE amount of berries on the trees, and the birds' unusually loud calls, all warn of a harsh winter, according to Donegal postman Michael Gallagher, who cost Paddy Power some �70,000 when he successfully forecasted a white Christmas two years ago. Michael also predicted our miserable summer this year, though it's unlikely there were any bookies offering decent odds against that.
