Thanks to everyone who has shared observations about acorns and squirrels. With some exceptions, there appears to be an overwhelming number of locations with record acorn drops. This is just one of many signs of a hard winter. As we enter October, we will want to switch gear and start to find and observe woolly bear caterpillars.These critters can be found in driveways, sidewalks and near buildings. When you see a caterpillar note: If there is a narrow orange band in the middle of the Woolly Bear caterpillar, it warns of heavy snow. If they are fat and fuzzy expect bitter cold.
If you spot a Woolly Bear Caterpillar, let us know what you see.
