Baltimore couldn’t let the rodent from up north have all the weather predicting glory.
In a news release, Old Bay and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources announced that a Blue Crab dubbed Baltimore Bill will be predicting either a warm fall or early winter in the Inner Harbor on Wednesday.
Apparently this crustacean will make his prediction "by walking off a specially designed crab plank and plunging back into the Chesapeake until he makes another appearance."
Larry Collmus, the official caller of the Preakness Stakes, will give the play-by-play of the event at 10:30 a.m., Sept. 26 at the Light Street Pavilion, 301 Light St.
