Help me identify a caterpiller

I found this guy outside my house in Saratoga county:


What is that? An emerald ash borer? An albino gypsy moth? A wooly polar bear?

I let it live. Should I have squashed it?

Hickory tussock moth caterpillar. Only reason I know is I saw one a few months ago and looked it up. Apparently some folks can have an allergic reaction them if the touch them.
