PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) — Members of Punxsutawney (puhnk-suh-TAW’-nee) Phil’s inner circle revealed spring is coming early.
Handlers for Pennsylvania’s most famous prognosticating groundhog say he didn’t see his shadow when the sun rose Saturday.
Groundhog day is always on February 2nd each year
The festivities have their origin in a German legend that says if a furry rodent casts a shadow on Feb. 2, winter continues. If not, spring comes early.
