Can anyone tell me about how they were used to predict the weather for the winter? As in how much snow we were to get? Thanks

Dunno what a 'wooly worm' is...

Around here they used to swear by the 'Wooly Bear' though...Brown caterpillar with a Black band...The wider the black band, the more sever the winter...

So they used to say anyway...

That so-called researcher has it bass-ackwards. In my neck of the woods, the darker the wooly bear, the colder winter will be.
He's such a good researcher he can't even get folklore and superstitions right.

I always heard that if you see a lot of wolly worms you are going to have a hard winter. Of course, this is southeast Texas and a hard winter here is 5 snowflakes in a 10 foot circle. ;)

Maybe you believe in Santa Claus, too? Don't waste your time.
