Upstaging Punxsutawney Phil by almost a week, Berks County’s furry weather prognosticator, Oscar the Groundhog, says winter’s far from over.
As told to his confidant, Lester Miller of Greenwich Township, Oscar predicts the current warm spell will give way to colder weather. And, in the second week of February, there’ll be a plowable amount of snow.
Miller, Die Wedder Barichda of the Pennsylvania Dutch community, revealed the forecast at the 50th gathering of Grundsow Lodge No. 15 Fon Barricks Kounty on Wednesday at the Kutztown Fire Co.’s banquet hall.
