Do you know what this is....???!!
It's a Woolly Worm...!!
According to mountain lore......his band of brown predicts the up coming winter weather.....
Do you see much BROWN....?????!!!
Found this little guy trying to get in the back door of the park office....
Looks like the beginning of winter will be bleak.......brown or mid-section should be mild and then winter goes out with a blast.
Maybe winter won't be toooooo bad this year.....
But....what about the solid black one i found two days ago.....???!!
I'm finding wooly bears in all colors this year, too. I guess they just can't agree on what winter is going to be like.ReplyDelete
We had crickets so bad a few weeks ago the lady who works at Curves had to call for reinforcement to help her sweep them out before the ladies came to exercise.ReplyDelete
I had forgotten all about the wolly bear predictors. Hope that all black one was an aberration but then after this summer---I guess anything goes.ReplyDelete
Here in our part of the country we call them wooly bears. Ours say that our winter will start off harsh, February will be mild and that Spring will come early.ReplyDelete
We'll see.... Have a Fantastic Friday!
Hopefully when you found the solid black one, it wasn't right outside YOUR door - - - let someone ELSE have the horrible winter.ReplyDelete
I don't want a dreary bad winter like last year! I don't know about that Wooly but if Miss Kitty's floofiness is any indication of weather I'm thinking it is going to be COLD!ReplyDelete
Around here, the brown band in the middle of the woolly bear is the only predictor. The wider the band, the harder the winter. So, an all black one would be very good!ReplyDelete
I like to touch them, and watch them curl up into a tight little ball.
I just rescued one that looks just like that one yesterday. He or she, was trying to cross the road. I love wooly bears and I didn't want to see it get squashed by a car. LOLReplyDelete
Interesting indeed! Now I have to go find me one to get better prepared for winter.ReplyDelete
I thought it was a weird colored catapillar.ReplyDelete
We call them wooly bears too. Been seeing them in the road alot. I try not to run them over!ReplyDelete
have heard the 'wooley worm' all my life in NC. I think you take the one you like the best.ReplyDelete
On a short leash with this internet connection. From Arley, AL
Well, obviously, the one you have here is a southern wooly worm and the one you found the other day (all black) is a northern wooly worm. Hence the mild winter and the cold winter! Anyhoo, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.ReplyDelete
we have these babies up my way and I just hop over them and continue on my way....now there's folklore attached....hmmm!ReplyDelete
We have had more black ones here also.ReplyDelete
