Having grown up and lived in

Having grown up and lived in the mountains of Western NC, I've always heard since I was a kid, that where the band's start and stop tells more. For instance, recently I have seen wooly worms with a small black band at the head with brown covering the rest (3/4) of its body. This means that winter will start off stormy with a lot of snow, then turn mild for the rest of the winter.

What does it mean when you just don't see any woolies? I usually see them around the garage every year, but this year none? I am located in Northeast Iowa, lots of box elder bugs no wooly bears?
