I live in NE PA. I wasI live in NE PA. I was surprised this year to see my first wooly bear in July. I've never seen them this early. In the past few months I've seen 5 or 6 all black. Recently I've seen a few black on each end and brown in the middle and one all brown. Since I was very young my family believed that the more black, the worse the winter weather. A few years back I saw my first all black in the Phila. area and they got more snow than we did in the Poconos. One storm dropped 15" of snow that year.
