If you believe The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the longer the middle brown band on a woolly worm, the shorter and milder the coming winter. The shorter the brown band, the longer and snowier. According to studies (yes, I’m not kidding, there have been studies) woolly worms are close or completely right 57% of the time.
I see more black than brown on this woolly worm who dropped out of the sky onto my manuscript this weekend when I was going over my book. Uh oh…..
Maybe we could do an informal study of our own! Everybody go find a woolly worm in your area…..
