  • Do you believe the Woolly Bear can predict the long-range weather? The story goes, the wider the middle stripe on the Woolly Be

    Do you believe the Woolly Bear can predict the long-range weather? The story goes, the wider the middle stripe on the Woolly Bear, the MILDER the weather. Conversely, a narrow band predicts a SEVERE long-range weather system.

    Oh sheet, all the Woolly Bears I have seen lately have NO middle band at all. Does that mean we are going to get hammered this winter? The leaf turn is just now getting started in N.Ohio and the colors are a very vivid orange-yellowish, about 0.1% turned so far. Bright colors compared to previous years. Does that mean anything?

      Seems to work here in SW Washinton.

      Also, when Winter is over, the earthwurmz come out and copulate.

      Hence, the name of Mah book, "When The Wurmz Fuk."

        Weather Prediction between the Farmer's Almanic or a woolly caterpiller.
        Flip a coin! Heads the Almanic and Tails the moth.

          I believe animals can predict the weathers days in advance but not months.

            The tails here in the midwest go by color, not the stripe. Dark color = bad winter; Light coloer = good winter.

              Seeing all blondies around these parts! No stripe.

                Seeing all blondies around these parts! No stripe. Is this one wide stripe? Or a stripe so narrow it doesn't exist?

                  Longrifle,
                  That is what I am seeing, very light color bodies and no stripe. What does that mean? Where are you located?

                    The Farmers Almanac and the wooly bear seem just as accurate as the weather channel.

                      I have found that there is some truth in old wives tales/weather lore. I have noticed that the squirrel tails this year are already getting really bushy. Another sign of a cold weather.
