Sean McDowell of Scott Township laughs with Al Bollinger of Mt. Lebanon while getting doused with water, compliments of the Pittsburgh Fire Department, during the annual Pittsburrrrgh Drowned Hogs Swim in the Monongahela River, Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, at Southside Riverfront Park. The 24-year-tradition, started by Bollinger when he lived in Boston and continued for 14 since he moved to Pittsburgh, attempts to assist “Pennsylvania’s most famous rodent” in predicting spring’s arrival. According to Bollinger, the group uses “a silly but sound meteorologic determination to figure out when spring is going to arrive,” and explained it by reciting a poem which pronounces, ‘If the Drowned Hogs frolic in the chilly Mon; springs arrival is almost won. But if they scream and run back out; winter will be a six-week bout.” (Pam Panchak/Post-Gazette)
