Now take a walk in the park with me….
and maybe we can figure it out!
The weather has been glorious here in the mountains of North Carolina! (we’re walking along Cane Creek here in Fletcher Park)
It was 75 degrees when I walked yesterday!
The leaves are wondering whether to turn
or enjoy the summer time weather a little longer!
And I have NEVER seen so much bittersweet!
It is all up in the tops of the trees!
Honey…will you reach me that branch way up high….
Of course I made a little arrangement…
and then I added to it!
So how will we predict the weather?
This ehow info gives us what we need to know…
How to predict winter with wooly worms by Outdoor Woman
“Using wooly worms (Pyrrharctia isabella) to predict winter is old American folklore that traces its history back to early Americana. Supposedly, Native Americans taught the pioneers to read wooly worms to predict winter weather. Wooly worm is the common name for the larval stage of the Isabella Tiger Moth. They are also called wooly bears.”
“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.

There are even wooly worm races in Banner Elk, NC….the festival was last weekend!
What do YOU think? Should we all head South for the winter?
