That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Daniel Boone National Forest lifts fire ban

WINCHESTER, Ky., July 17, 2012 – Due to recent rainfall, the ban prohibiting campfires and other open flames outside of developed recreation areas in the Daniel Boone National Forest is now lifted. The ban was issued last month due to drought conditions across the forest.

“We urge forest visitors to continue using caution with fire,” said Deputy Forest Supervisor Bill Lorenz.

“While the recent rains were beneficial and reduced the risk for wildfire, the precipitation level for this region remains below normal.

“Our fire management officials will continue to monitor the drought situation across the forest,” added Lorenz.

Most counties in the national forest area have also lifted fire bans declared last month.

A separate ban prohibiting fireworks in the Daniel Boone National Forest remains in effect.
