Dueling Groundhogs offer different forecasts

February 2nd, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Queen City Charlie has spoken: an early arrival of spring. The 16th annual Cumberland Groundhog Day event held Thursday morning on the steps of City Hall before a small but enthusiastic  crowd. Charlie whispered his prediction to the mayor  precisely at sunrise- who in turn announced to those gathered that Charlie did not see his shadow. Meanwhile in neighboring Pennsylvania, that other groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil had a different view. Phil saw his shadow thus predicting six more weeks of winter.
