Concord Charlie predicts more winter


ATHENS (WVVA) - Concord University's resident weather-hog says the Two Virginias should be ready for more winter.

Concord Charlie's prediction was revealed by the school's interim President Dr. Kendra Boggess during Monday's Groundhog Day Breakfast on the Athens campus.

With Groundhog Day on a Sunday this year, the school held its annual event a day later.

Boggess relayed the message that Charlie had seen his shadow on Sunday, and phoned in the message Monday morning.

Greg Puckett of Community Connections served as 2014's Grand Groundhog Watcher. Puckett said he was excited to return to his alma mater with the distinction.
