Wild Thursday special: Woolly worms

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

So last week, I saw my first woolly worms (woolly bears) while out driving to some story. And the first three were dark, and I mean no question about it dark.

Ah ha, is it a sign?

For a couple days I kept the camera handy while out and of course only find mixed ones or pale ones like this.

For what it is worth, as of Thursday morning, my count was three dark, two pale and one mixed.

The big push is still a couple weeks away I suspect.

Does it mean anything?
