Hard Winter ahead?

When I was young, there was a popular belief that an abundant berry crop was a strong sign of a harsh Winter ahead. Well this year's berry crop is unbelievable: every fruiting tree seems over-burdened: even in our garden, an ancient tree that hasn't done anything for ten years is dripping with apples.
I reckon 'nature' is as likely to be right as the climatologists who failed to predict ten years of global cooling which they're currently trying to explain by ignoring the basic principles of liquid convection: let's wait and see!
