A everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about weather is a strange animal. It is Seldom Ideal hardly Ever seems to cooperate and never pleases everyone. Take this Winter for example. Its been one of the Mildest in memory. Motorists and insurance companies Are in heaven. Skiers and Snow plowers Are in. Well just say Arentt too thrilled. Not that All that Many people Are complaining mind you. But this Isnit the Way it was supposed to be.

A this movements indicate that just like the Economy of the nation the worst is Over a Means said at a ceremony outside this Mountain town about 300 people mostly College students watched As the wriggling and sniffling Phil emerged from his Hole and was met by a wet 36-degree temperature. A Phil wants All of his Loyal subjects to know we have weathered the storm this Winter., Spring is on the Way Quot said Means who wore the traditional top hat and tails Punxsutawney a groundhog has failed to see his Shadow Only five times since the tradition began in 1887. He most recently predicted an Early Spring in 1975. Folklore dictates that if he saw his Shadow a even through miserable Winter weather a then six More weeks of cold weather would follow. The ceremony is All in fun of course. The prediction was secretly decided by the clubs 12-member a dinner circles Well in Advance.
