Hi all
This has me scared and excited at the same time.
Last week I had one woolly worm trying to come inside and found another one in my kitchen.
I haven't even seen a woolly worm since 2002.
The winter of 2002/2003 was a bad one for my area.
Early Dec. we had major ice storm,in 2003 24" of snow, and and another icing.
I'm not saying it will be a bad winter.
I'll wait and see if woolly worms do have something to do with Predicting Weather.

According to legend, the less

According to legend, the less orange/brown and the more black the worse the winter will be. So far here in WS, except for the very 1st one we saw, all of them have been 2/3rd's brown with only black heads. :(

My Woollys

Hi both of mine were twins.
They hand black heads brown middles and black ends. Mostly brown. The web says there are 13 bands. So mine looks to have 3 black 8 brown and 2 black. We'll see.
