I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas!
In November we had nine inches of snow! Now we have none. 🙁 Green grass growing. I am hoping we don’t have to pull out the mower again.
As I was walking many times this fall I saw woolly bear caterpillars and most of them had rather long brown sections. Now I knew people had used them to forecast the winter but I couldn’t remember which way it was. So I looked it up on the internet and found that the longer brown section was said to mean a mild winter. Well so far that is holding out to be true. I did not realize it was a Native American way of telling but they were very skilled at observing nature so it makes sense.
That being said I still find myself singing the song. We live in Iowa. We should have snow! We still have 10 days for it to arrive. So I will keep hoping and dreaming for snow. But I will also enjoy my walks with Scotty on not so frigid days.
