Farmer's almanac, more folklore.... seen any solid black woolly bear caterpillars yet?

No but they are over half  black ... Just enough brown on the ends to say they brown.

Saw loads of the things when we were out walking in Vermont's Green Mountains a few weeks ago, most had wide bands.

No but I've seen a bunch of brown/black striped ones. What does that mean?


They are all brown / black .... The old wives tale it the more black the colder / more snow the winter.

Hmmm. Have you ever seen one crossing the highway while you're at speed?

I saw one crawling in the driveway. One big brown section in the middle and black on each end. What does it mean?
It was pretty fat.

As the saying goes ...the wider the brown band the colder / more snow we are getting. A lot of the  woolly's around here just have black ends all brown in the middle.

No opposite-  wider brown is milder, all black is the worse Winter + depends on which end has more black.
The head is first part of Winter, the ass end is the last.

You're likely to have an easier Winter
