When we were on the way back from Longview, we also stopped at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge, where I saw this wooly bear crossing the path.  What do you think, will it be a cold winter?

When I was growing up, folklore I heard was that if the wooly bears have a nice thick coat, it’ll be cold; a mild winter if they are not so furry.  But according to Wikipedia it’s based on the length of the orange stripe in the middle.  Which to be all scientific, has no meaning at all, but it’s fun to think about.
