Punxsutawney Phil Sees His Shadow, Predicting An Early Spring

Spring is coming early: So sayeth the rodent – or at least that’s what his handlers told us just before 7:30 this morning. Yes, Pennsylvania’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, failed to see his shadow, meaning he’s “predicted” an early spring. But, of course, members of the top hat-wearing Inner Circle decided the prediction ahead of time, as always. They announced the results at sunrise on Gobbler’s Knob — just outside the town for which Phil is named.
