Woolly Bears

Ah, the woolly bear caterpillar. You are a sure sign that fall is just around the corner. And if your numbers are any indication, we are in for one doozy of a fall. The other day I was driving into town and, during one three-mile stretch of road, encountered hundreds of these little guys trying to cross the highway. It made for quite the interesting obstacle course.
