This winter has been so warm. Yesterday it got up to 60 degrees. I happened to have the day off, so Lucy and I decided we needed to take advantage of the warm weather.
We weren’t the only ones that thought it was a good day to be out and about.
This is a wooly bear caterpillar. I grew up calling them wooly worms. This is the larval form of the Isabella Tiger Moth. This caterpillar, according to legend, forecasts the coming winter weather. Again I defer to the Old Farmers Almanac, (http://www.almanac.com/content/predicting-winter-weather-woolly-bear-caterpillars), “the wider that middle brown section is (i.e., the more brown segments there are), the milder the coming winter will be. Conversely, a narrow brown band is said to predict a harsh winter. ” So, it is the wooly worm vs the persimmon seed in weather prediction. I am voting for the wooly worm 🙂
