Groundhog Day: Alternative Facts

As some of you may already know, Punxsutawney Phil, in the red state of Pennsylvania, saw his shadow this morning and is calling for six more weeks of winter. Meanwhile, in the blue state of New York, Staten Island Chuck predicted an early spring. (Chuck's accuracy rating is 80 percent.) The Canadian groundhog Shubenacadie Sam, who prognosticates in Nova Scotia, agreed with Chuck. So, it would seem we can look forward to a liberal spring. You can read all about the groundhogs and their alternative facts here: "Groundhog Day 2017: Winter Is (Still) Coming, Punxsutawney Phil Says." (Note: The groundhog in the picture is Punxsutawney Phil.)
