Phil Saw His Shadow!

The brown marmot known as Punxatawny Phil saw his shadow this morning when he emerged from his burrow in Gobbler’s Knob. This means six more weeks of winter according to his handlers. The traditional event is based on a German legend and has been a tourist-oriented event dating back to 1887. More scientific forecasts from meteorologists suggest, however, that we will have an early spring.
