We live in the country inWe live in the country in South Central Illinois. I grew up here and my Grandfather always predicted the winter weather w/these little guys. He always said that if the "Woolies" were mostly dark, the winter would be cold and snowy and if they were light blonde, it would be a light winter. I am 62 and have been observing these little "Woolies" since I was 6 and Grandpa has been right all these years. I am now telling my Grand Kids about the "Woolies" and they are starting to keep records to see if I am right. I have found that most of the time, the old ways are the best. :-)
