If the string is moving, it’s windy…

Apparently, and according to THIS story in the local rag, we are now predicting the long term weather forecast by the color of the ‘fur’ on a caterpillar named “Lickety Split”.

I cannot but help but think that this is bordering on witchcraft and as such, goes against the whole god, gardening and golf philosophy they hold so dear around these parts (what I like to call the three G’s!). On the plus side, you have to admit that it’s a whole lot cheaper than putting a load of weather satellites into orbit and with an 84.5% success rate, it’s probably a hell of a lot more accurate too.
