My wife thought this was a woolly bear, those fabled forecasters of winter, crawling around our yard Tuesday evening.
I'm not so sure.
That is a woolly bear (woolly worm).
It is so light.
Or that woolly bears have any relation whatsoever to forecasting weather. I believe that was debunked a long time ago.
Then again, I'll clutch at a sign, even a wrong way one, that we might have a mild winter.
And I will keep looking on my prowls down country roads for the next month.
I wonder if the early rapid crop harvest will have any impact on the number and coloration of woolly bears.
