"She kept eating kale, mustard greens, parsley, carrots -- so I knew something was different," said her owner, Tosh Kano.
Kano said those are super foods. E.T. was storing up fat for a longer winter.
"January, February, we are going to have a real good snow accumulation," said Kano.
Kano said it's all about the signs. The acorns are bigger this year, and there are more of them. There were more 100 degree days over the summer. Before our mild winter last year, there was one 100-degree day, and fewer acorns. And E.T. ate very little before her hibernation, ending in August, and only wanted bean sprouts.
