Most of them do have a mix of brown and black. However, since I've been over here, about 10 years, we've had two crazy snow events, like 3 feet of snow each storm. One was in 2010 and the other a couple of years later but both years most of the Wooly Bullys I saw were virtually all black.

I too have seen a Woolly this fall about a month ago, and he had more brown in the middle..Now a few years back I saw one that's was mostly black with small amount of brown in middle and that was a cold snowy winter....We will see who is the Weather bee...

Well it looks like the Wooley Bear got it right again here in the Northeast, very mild and little snow...He's 2-2 in my book , few years back predicted a cold and snowy one and he was right....Forget that stupid Woodchuck stuff...The Wooley Bear rules supreme....Just have to be lucky to see one in Sept- Oct.. crawling around...that's the hard part...

huh.I also live in the North-East and our winter was very cold with a ton of snow!
the exact opposite of what you are saying..

I guess "north east" is too big to generalize for the whole region..

I assume you live in the Great lake region on NY. state,, IE Buffalo.. I use to live in Fort Drum, NY. .. you have your own climate there. that is not considered the Northeast... N.J, NYC, Lower Hudson Valley, Conn, R.I.. Mass. are the N.E. regions...

New York state, New Jersey and Pennsylvania are all part of the North East, but they are not part of New England.

Upstate NY., Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, are Northern Tier States...And were not talking about New England, that's a different category all together..

all the human predictors were wrong in our area. they were saying the drought would be back since our area very rarely has back to back big winters.

i watched the birds and squirrels and they were chowing down and collecting seeds we put out all fall.

they were right. we had a wetter than usual winter and it's still on.
