Woolly Worm Weather Do-Over

Oct
30

The first woolly worm I found this year predicted a cold, hard winter. What rational choice did I have but to disqualify it and seek a replacement? Look at this woolly worm! I love this one! See all the brown on this one! It’s predicting a short, mild winter. What a sweet woolly.


If this works, I’m gonna find a doctor who says, “Eat all the ice cream you want! It won’t make you fat!”

    We just call them caterpillars here, but “woolly worm” is cuter.

    I haven’t seen any this year, come to think of it, even out walking in the woods. What does that mean? :eek:

    I’m like Susan. I’ve seen both colors so far this fall. I hope it turns out to be the winter your woolly worm is predicting, even though the snow would help bring back the water too. Hope everyone has a great day.

    The only wooly worm I have seen this year was smashed on the street. It is late in the month for them to be so scarce. Wonder what that means?

    Have an enjoyable day!

    wellll… we saw more woollies than EVER this past summer and fall and we have been having one of the hardest winters in a long long time and YESTERDAY… Feb 2, 2008 I found a woolly worm all curled up for a long winters nap and guess what… he/she was almost ALL BLACK! just had a small narrow band of brown…. so what does THAT mean? I think I already know the answer as our winter is telling the story… oh come all ye robins and blue birds, the cats are getting cabin fever! :purr:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
