Local groundhogs split on spring prediction
Are we in for some real winter weather or an early spring? "Holtsville Hal" did not see his shadow this morning at the Holtsville Wildfire and Ecology site in Suffolk. This means that spring is right around the corner. However, Nassau County's "Malverne Mel" saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter. That sentiment was echoed by Pennsylvania's "Punxsutawney Phil."
