This forecast is for Banner Elk..

I saw an little fuzzy all black worm the other day..however...my spouse spotted an all Brown Full Grown Wooly worm -which predicts a MILD WINTER!!!

Like those winters!!

These Wooly Worms are usually right on the money!

With the temperatures so far..it feels as if the Sun is Falling from the sky!
