The Full Moon… and Worms?

full_moon2_1-10-09_b_lrHeaded out tonight? Well if you are, look up and enjoy the Worm Moon. The what moon? Tonight’s full moon is called the Worm moon; that is according to folklore. As temperatures begin to warm, the ground begins to thaw and the earthworms start to appear in your gardens.
Northern Native American tribes refer to it as the Full Crow Moon. This is because the cawing crows give us the sign that winter has ended and spring is arriving. They also call it the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes more of a crusted snow due to the warm days and the cold nights.
Colonial Americans called it the Full Sap Moon because it marked the time for tapping maple trees. Then there is the Dakota Sioux, they called it “Moon When Eyes Are Sore From Bright Snow.”
Thank goodness, all of our snow is melted away!

    Last night the Moon was VERY bright (looked like a “full” moon already to me). It was so bright, I actually got up in the wee hours to look to see what light that was outside that was shining so brightly into my windows!

    If any games in November are canceled, then the refund or credit will be issued by Dec. 10. All refunds come with one percent interest.So far for the Bulls, the lockout has meant the cancellation of four home preseason games.
