What's the latest word on the woolly bear caterpillars? I just read about the possibility of snow on Saturday. Area experts, what do you say? (Other than Yikes or Yuck)

I think it's more likely that Michaela Salahi will join a nunnery than we'll get snow on Saturday. But hey, you never know....

As for my buddies the woolly bears, they're so cute but not that precise. They just tell you if you're going to get a lot of snow over the course of the entire season. They don't tell you when you're getting snow or how cold it will be, or even if the snow will come in one huge storm or a hundred little storms. Anyway, useful or not the last one I saw had a thins stripe, which means "Snow, snow, plenty of snow, but not as much as we had for Snowmageddon."

I LOVE snow! Not that I think it will do anything on Saturday (also got a Halloween costume party to go to, so for that reason i hope it doesn't snow), but it's worth looking out the window for

Are woolly bears also known as asps? My brother got stung by an asp when he was a kid (in Texas), and he hallucinated.

In the past couple of months we've had an earthquake, a hurricane and a flood.

Yah, it'll probably snow on Saturday.

No... but I wouldn't be at all surprised if someone's turned Woolly into an app.
