An early spring!

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Perhaps Mother Nature was casting her vote while faithful
followers of Punxsutawney Phil flocked to Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney
for the 2020 prognostication, as she was covering the town in a blanket
of snow. But a little bit of snow sure didn’t keep the crowds away, as a
large group gathered to hear the only opinion that mattered Sunday
morning — would Phil cast his ballot for an early spring or for winter
six weeks more?
This year, as Phil reflected upon his annual forecast with a mirrored
date — 02022020 — in mind, he couldn’t have seen things more clearly.
There was no reflection — or shadow — to see, and Phil called for an
early spring.
