The Wooly Worm Says… October 18, 2005 8:52 am

My wife posted this picture of a wooly worm that was crawling around outside our house. It’s head is toward the top of the picture. Looks like a mild winter to me.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration explains the wooly worm as a weather predictor.

"…the amount of black on the woolly bear in autumn varies proportionately with the severity of the coming winter…"

"The longer the woolly bear’s black bands, the longer, colder, snowier, and more severe the winter will be."

"…every 3rd weekend in October the annual Woolly Worm Festival in Banner Elk, NC. They begin worm their worm races around 10:20 AM…"

Ours was heading west. Now what does that mean?!
