Wide brown stripe on the woolly bear. Ducks went from summer skinny to winter waddle in no time. Already turned on the heaters. What does it all mean? Your guess is as good as mine!
Read it and weep?

That is absolutely gorgeous my friend. I’ve never seen this white stuff in person before but everyone’s pictures look so inviting! XOXO – Bacon
Thx!!! Now if it were sugar… 😉
Oh my. Mommy says I have to cut back on the sugary sweet stuff. She says it makes me… what was the word… a jacked up piglet that can fly. I think that’s what she called me – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
Sorry. It’s Halloween. I went a little sugar crazy. 😉
No reason to apologize. I love me some sugar my friend. Mommy just doesn’t like what it does to me – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
All the persimmon seeds are spooned shaped down this way…looks like a wet, heavy snow season.
We’re ready to batten down the hatches!!!
lol..sugar:-) Is that catepillar the one that means winter is near? Was wondering I remember something like that years ago, if I am way off–well, just me-lol
So they say…read the link to the almanac story, tho. It says that really it tells you what the previous winter did! (Like, how much help is that?!)
I did not see the link before, I will read it:-)
Update: someone I know saw an all-black woolly bear in PA. Watch out, folks!!!
We’re getting ready for our annual pre-Halloween snow. The weather guessers, however, are undecided on how cold it will become to make it snow.
So it may snow but not last? That can be very pretty!
Where are the babies??? Do they live outside in the winter?
They do indeed live outside all year. Built-in downy coats, doncha know! 😉
We’re such wimps down here. When I had a dog a few years ago, I’d make him wear his jacket outside!!! That’s pretty sad, isn’t it? WIMPS ‘R’ US… 😀
Wonder if they make down jackets for dogs?! 🙂
I thought of this post yesterday when I picked up a Woolly Worm who, like yours pictured, had a similar wide brown stripe. But I want a good snowy winter though!!!! The last couple of years here in the Philly area have been – eh. Predictions are fickle though. So here’s hoping! (BTW – I have been to the Banner Elk, NC Woolly Worm festival and it was a hoot!)
See my other comment about the PA woolly bear–you just may get your wish!!!
