According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the fuzziness and color combination of these wooly bear caterpillars can predict the winter weather. Here’s what it says:

“The woolly bear caterpillar tells if it is a bad winter if there are a lot of them crawling around, if he has a heavy coat and if the black band on his back is wide. The more black than brown he is or the wider the black stripe, the worse the winter. A narrow orange band in the middle of the caterpillar warns of heavy snow. If this guy is fat and fuzzy, it means presage bitter cold.”

So: what does this guy mean for our North Country winter?
