Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!  Hear Ye!

Now, this Second Day of February, Two Thousand and Sixteen,
the One Hundred and Thirtieth Annual Trek
of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.

Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Seers,
Prognosticator of All Prognosticators,
was awakened from his burrow at 7:25 A.M.
to the cheers of his thousands of faithful followers.

In Groundhogese, he directed the President and the Inner Circle
to the precise prediction Scroll, which translated reads:

"The Inner Circle goes to great ends
To keep me abreast of latest trends.
Down in my burrow I never get bored
Riding on my hoverboard.
And I sure have fun flying my drone,
But weather forecasting is my comfort zone.
Is this current warm weather more than a trend?
Per chance this Winter has come to an end?
There is no shadow to be cast,
An early Spring is my forecast!"
