Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Hear Ye

Now, this Second Day of February, Candlemad Day in the year Two Thousand and Fifteen, being the One Hundred and Twenty Ninth Annual Trek of the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club at Gobbler’s Knob, Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, United States of America…

Punxsutawmney Phil, the Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of Prognosticators, was awakened from his burrow at 7:28 AM by his Handles, John Griffiths and Ron Ploucha and by the cheers of his thousands of steadfast and faithful followers…

Phil waved to his fans, gazed at the sky and around his stump and with the help of the Inner Circle, looked for his shadow. Majestically…speaking in Groundhogese, he directed President Bill Deeley to the precise scroll, which reads:

But I, Punxsutawney Phil, am still your best yet,
Yes, A Shadow I see, you can start to twitter,
