It’s the Monday of the month when we get to choose what to share on Sally’s challenge. I’ve gone with “Animals” this month, although probably not the sort you expected to see.
When we lived in Cleveland, meteorologist Dick Goddard created the Woollybear Festival, which included caterpillar races. I guess you don’t have to worry about missing the finish! Folklore says that the size of the middle stripe of a woolly bear tells you whether or not it will be a hard winter. Supposedly a thin strip means a rough winter. It appears the woolly bear we came across, fortunately not literally, in the park predicted a mild winter. I’m guess he meant as far as snow is concerned. -15F wind chill doesn’t strike me as mild. However, I’m in Arizona this week, so maybe he was prescient.
