At 7:28AM on Friday February 2nd, 2007, Punxsutawney Phil, King of the Groundhogs. Seers of Seers, Prognosticators of Prognosticators, Weather Prophet without Peer, Imitated but Never Equaled gave the following proclamation
El Nino has caused high winds, heavy snow, ice and freezing temperatures in the west;
Here in the East, with much milder winter we have been blessed.
Global warming has caused a great debate;
Mild winter makes it seem just great.
On this Groundhog Day, we think of one thing:
Will we have winter or will we have spring?
On Gobbler’* ****, I see no shadow today;
I predict early spring is on the way!
Even the Groundhog is wrong sometimes
