A walk

If you’re looking for today’s haunted post, go down one.  I’m posting twice today because I took a walk, it’s beautiful here in the Bogs, and I want to share some of the walk with you.

Last year I posted about the wooly bear over at Bountiful Healing.  You can find the post here if you’d like to read it and see what last year’s wooly bear looked like.  The gist of it (in case you don’t want to read it) is that the wooly bear is known as a weather prognosticator, the size of the middle band being the indicator of whether we’ll have a mild or severely cold winter.  The wider the band, the milder the winter.

I’ve seen two wooly bears in the past two days.  This wooly bear thinks it will be a cold winter:

This wooly bear seems to disagree:

Last year’s wooly bear was about as accurate as most weather forecasters.  That is, sometimes right, sometimes wrong.  We had some mild spots and we had some really cold spots, and it seemed like a typical Bogs winter to me.
