Snoooooow already? I know it must be out there somewhere but the longer it stays away the better. Ani, my dog loves to go walkies in the snow--I could post some photos--it's funny. He is Snow Dog. Throw him out the door in the snow and he's at home. Well, that's not exactly walkies but he does his thing and then, once the plows, make that little path down the middle of the road it can be real walkies. As you say, winter is not a big deal for some of us, especially when we don't have to go to work.

I think we may have had our first hard frost last night but I haven't gone outside to check.

About three feet of snow last winter--I just stood aside holding the leash and Snow Dog got his big smiley face. This is after he was done climbing drifts and jumping and sliding.

No, didn't get to the festival. Hubby was in hospital that Friday so we were home and quiet! Got lots of photos from others on FB, tho.

The outcome was - a mild winter - and none of us believes that!!! lol

The woolly worms I have seen would indicate a harsh winter.

Ours have actually changed, which intrigues me. I didn't know they adjusted. Of course, maybe I'm just seeing different caterpillars with different opinions.

All I know is the ones I saw in September had such a thin middle stripe they were almost black. Two weeks ago I started seeing ones with wider stripes, and now they all seem to have nice fat stripes.

The news has been talking about a tough winter for all states that have a winter. The woolly's aren't talking (I don't think we have the here).

I've never heard of woolies either but this is not looking good. For us way up here, both the FARMERS Almanac and the OLD FARMERS Almanac predict a bad winter.

This is getting dire.

Ani--Yes! There's no point in going out there and freezing to death. I hold the "handle" and woooooosh zing the dog flies away. My previous dog I just had to stand there (inside, door only open enough for the leash to go through) and holler, "Go wee wee." And he would do it and come right back in.

My black walnut tree had enough walnuts to feed an army of squirrels.
So looks like a harsh winter
