Okay, so I did some research on the “wooly” worm and ran across a site that spoke of these fuzzy worms. They stated that many people watch them to determine the length of winter. Their name is the “Wooly Bear Worm” – which made sense why we call them wooly worms!
Most people say that the length of the brown area located in between the two black ends tells the length of winter. The longer the area, the longer winter will be, etc.
I just thought that was an interesting tidbit to share.
