They say you can predict the winter weather by the amount of black on the Wooly Bear Caterpillars.

Judging by the ones I've seen here lately, we're headed for the next Wisconsonian Glaciation. One guy lumbering across the path was so big, it had a lightening bug leading the way with lantern flashing and carrying a sign: Caution--Wide Load

We've noticed an unusually large presence of spiders around here too. We only had one week of summer and fall started in early August. https://www.farmersalmanac.com/spide...er-weather-310 We're stocking up, prepping for a long, cold winter.

It's fun old wives tale. The band widens as the caterpillar matures.
