    Saw my first Wooly Bear caterpillar today. Showed it to my wife. "Buy more pellets" she said - she believes the large brown band in the middle signifies a colder than normal winter here in CT.

    Can't get more scientific than Wooly Bear caterpillars I alway say :)

    We've had mild winters for the past 4 years around here. I'm ready for some of the white stuff when the weather turns colder. However, there's not need to rush the apple cider and pumpkin pie times of the upcoming fall either.

    I was always told since I was a kid, that the larger the brown band, the milder the winter, and the larger the black bands, the worse it would be............ I hope I'm right on this one.

    I just bought a new John Deere 2520 tractor with a front end loader and back-hoe.
    Can plow my way out of anything.
    It might be cold, but it won't snow here now for at least two years.
