People gathered together at Gobbler’s Knob early this morning, waiting to see if the world famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, would emerge. After taping the tree with a cane, Phil finally came out.

He was greeted with applause by onlookers, but attempted to flee before his actions were closely analyzed.

Finally the results were in…”There is no shadow to be cast! An early spring is my forecast! Take your jackets off, you’re not going to need them!”

The findings were independently verified by a groundhog in Canada, where Shubenacadie Sam also saw no shadow.

So there you have it…WE can all expect an early spring this year!
