Did you know?

Since 1978, local residents have celebrated the coming of the snow season by deciding which worm will have the honor of predicting the severity of the coming winter! The winning worm is the one who makes it through the heats of hard-fought races up a three-foot length of the string. The lighter brown a segment is, the milder that week of winter will be. The darker black a segment is, the colder and snowier the corresponding week will be!
