They might look cute and cuddly, but the woolly bear caterpillars submitted for the 2010 Hagers-Town Town and Country Almanack contest brought news of a harsh and severe winter ahead, according to Kate S. Alexander at The Herald-Mail.
The Almanack received more than 60 entries during the month of October from local residents and children who gathered, photographed and submitted pictures of the caterpillars for judging.
Using the photographs submitted for the contests, Almanack Weather Prognosticator William O’Toole determined that the upcoming winter will be cold, snowy and severe, Almanack Editor Charles W. Fisher Jr. said.
