Awhile back I posted a photo of a woolly worm. DSCN7859 Now if this isn’t exactly what has happened to our winter I don’t know what is. Totally accurate for our area.

According to ASK.COM 

“According to folk wisdom, when the brown bands on fall woolly bears are narrow, it means a harsh winter is coming. The wider the brown band, the milder the winter will be. Some towns hold annual woolly worm festivals in the fall, complete with caterpillar races and an official declaration of the woolly worm’s prediction for that winter.

Are the woolly worm’s bands really an accurate way to predict the winter weather? Dr. C.H. Curran, former curator of insects at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, tested the woolly worms’ accuracy in the 1950’s. His surveys found an 80% accuracy rate for the woolly worms’ weather predictions.”

CRAZY weather these days due to global warming, maybe it’s time to do another study on them. I imagine if you found one nearer the eastern seaboard states this year well it must have been all black.

Hope  Spring comes soon..I am tired of white and cold..want some warmth right now. Wherever you are hope you have a great weekend.

  1. We get near fifty degrees today then it will be high twenties for the rest of the coming week. I am going to brave a walk today though the wind looks to be high. I wish I knew what the season ahead holds…last year drought and heat all summer long this year…who knows?

  2. Nice here today and tomorrow will be OK. But there is rain predicted on Tuesday and into next week! Yeah. We really need more rain—really. Don’t find any wooly worms around here…I guess that means we don’t have winter???!!!

  3. BOY, I am SO ready to get out of this cold. But I remember complaining about the 100+ temps too. Ya can’t win, can ya?
