Snow in the Heartland

Many people were wearing shorts on Saturday. It was a beautiful day! I wish we could have spent the whole day outside. Instead Mica had Quiz Bowl, Isaak had a basketball game, and I had a lunch date with my mom and sisters. It was all good things; just not outside. 

Isaak happened upon a caterpillar. The myth is...if the caterpillar has more black than brown we're supposed to have a long winter, if the caterpillar has more brown than black we're supposed to have a short winter.

This one had more brown than black, which would make it seem as thought our winter will be short. That's certainly not what The Farmer's Almanac states. I pass it all off as just fun stories. The weather is going to do what the weather is going to do. As much as I'd love to believe the Groundhog doesn't see his shadow, and the caterpillar has more brown than black...I don't put too much stalk into that. 

What about you? Do you believe old predictions? I suppose there's some truth to old medicines/practices. 

Two days after I saw this caterpillar it snowed. I'm thinking The Farmer's Almanac will be right on this upcoming winter. 

At least a heart traveled along with me all the way to work.

It's been brutal here already as far as winter goes. It rained and snowed on Halloween, then we got dumped on with more snow today. We're supposed to get another 6-8 inches tonight. I can deal with the cold, but snow is where I draw the line. I can't wait to retire to somewhere where I never have to see it again.

The caterpillar is so cute, and I hope he's right about a short winter!

The heart looks like a butterfly to me. Either way, cool ice crystal formation. My mom is in Ohio and said there are flurries. I don't put much stalk in the tales, but I do hope your caterpillar is right.
