Stevie was right! The wooly worm’s role as a weather
prophet must all be a lot of superstitious nonsense. Perhaps one
of those Florida wooly worms strayed north (does the Sunshine ·
State have wooly worms?) or one of our little natives put on the
wrong fur coat. The only wooly worm I saw last fall was reddish
brown with small black stripes on each end. Now, according to
ancient mountain lore this was an optimistic prediction for a »
tiny bit of severe weather at the beginning and end of winter
with mild weather in between; i.e., black for bad, brown for
mild. It was a beautiful October day when I met Mr. Wooly
Worm and all my defenses were down. I was ready to believe `
anything. So I discussed this token of balmy weather with  
other superstitious mountaineers. All agreed that it held true. i
Thus encouraged, I broached the subject at the breakfast table. .
My son, Stevie, told me flat out that the whole thing was super-
stitious nonsense. I stoutly defended my theory against his I
scientific arguments. We quit at an impasse. The school bus
was coming.
Alas, during Christmas Season this lovely prediction was  V
blown to bits by a whale of a lot of bad weather, with snow, sleet, ,
ice, and temperatures much below normal, near, at or below
zero. This lasted intermittently until February.
We were not beaten yet. There was still that Groundhog  I
Day theory by which the old folks swear. Well, February 2 J
dawned grim, gloomy and gray. This was just what we wanted
(the one day in the year when no one seems to mind dreary
skies!). The groundhog must not see his shadow or we will have l
six weeks more of severe weather. Otherwise, winter is about  
over. But, no, the sun peeped out. Spirits sank low but Kate
Ireland assured us at the lunch table that the sun did not stay
out long enough for shadow casting. Cheers! Goodbye, winter.
February 3 (while trudging a mile through heavy snowfall
to the oflice) 2 "Stevie is right, it’s all superstitious hogwash . . ."

Albert is just about through medical school. We are leaving
here the end of January and Albert will spend the last part of

Wendover for a visit. We’re both fascinated with the plans for
y the new hospital and the Family Nurse Practitioner Program.
