Ah, I've heard about that wooly guy before.

Don't want to blow your surprise Mike, but isn't a old folklore where the severity and/or length of the winter can be determined by its colors?

As of now we here in Lafayette my start to see some rain by around 3:10pm or so. The clouds are only at around 400ft to 450ft so right now it dose not look to bad. Another thing is there is not to many new lightning strikes so thats a good sign.
