GOBBLER’S KNOB – At sunrise at 7:27 a.m. this Groundhog Day, Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his temporary burrow surrounded by members of the Inner Circle in top hats and tuxedos and to the cheers from his thousands of worldwide faithful followers.
In Groundhogese he directed the Inner Circle president to his prognostication scroll. It reads “Down in my burrow on long winter nights, I listen to tunes to keep my mind right.
“… Your cheers at The Knob really give me a thrill and everyone singing to the world ‘Phil, Phil, Phil’ but predicting the weather, that’s my song.
“For 133 years, I’ve never been wrong, so …. stop the music, here is my forecast: ‘faithful followers, there is no shadow of me; a beautiful spring it shall be.’”
