Wooly Wooly

I keep hearing 'bad winter' coming..... It appears the wooly worm has a different take on the situation. I hope he's correct!
Wooly worm Winter detection
Step 1
Look for wooly worms under rocks and inside hollow logs. (or making an escape across a pathway)
Step 2
Examine the wooly worm, pay attention to its bands of colors. The wooly worm will curl into a ball when touched or threatened. When they crawl, they can crawl very quickly!
Step 3
Wooly worm forecasters say that the size of the brown band of color will tell you what kind of winter is coming. Legend says that the thinner the brownish red bands, the harsher the winter will be. If the wooly worm is mostly brownish red in the middle, winter will be mild.
Step 4
Wooly worm enthusiasts claim an 85 percent success rate over the last few decades. Scientists tend to disagree and say wooly worm weather prediction is as unscientific as using groundhogs to predict winter weather. The groundhogs likely side with the wooly worms.
