The mornings are getting pretty cool now so, it's time to pull out the warm and toasty. . . . . socks. What? You thought I was going to say boots? This is the south. We are surrounded by mountains that shelter us from most bad weather. I can count on one hand the number of times the weather was too nasty for Birks. Knoxville has four distinct seasons and neither summer nor winter are unbearable when compared to other places in the states. That said, this wooly was in our front yard a few weeks ago. What kind of winter do you think we'll be having?  Posted by Picasa

  1. ohhhhh, I used to see those wooley worms all the time in my hometown!!! we used to see ones that were orange and black striped.

  2. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration explains the wooly worm as a weather predictor.

    “…the amount of black on the woolly bear in autumn varies proportionately with the severity of the coming winter…”

    “The longer the woolly bear’s black bands, the longer, colder, snowier, and more severe the winter will be.”

    “…every 3rd weekend in October the annual Woolly Worm Festival in Banner Elk, NC. They begin worm their worm races around 10:20 AM…”

  3. WOOLY BEARS! Dick Goddard (Cleveland news guy) used to have Wooly Bear Races every year. I miss them!

    They’re my favorite kind of wooly.
