It’s Groundhog Day!



It’s Groundhog Day!  According to Holtsville Hal spring will be coming early this year.  Hal woke up this morning to some unusual sounds from outside his burrow, a crowd of hundreds arrived at the Brookhaven Wildlife & Ecology Center in Holtsville awaiting Hal’s prognostics.

Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro “spoke” with Hal this morning and read aloud his formal prediction to the crowd —  “As I stood by my burrow and looked to the ground there was no shadow for me to be found,  and so the kids and their families will have more time to play.  The rest of the winter will feel like may, cause old man winter is too weak to stay!”

Hal predicted last year’s rough end to the winter, and after this year’s record breaking lows many are hoping Hal got this year right too, especially Highway Superintendent Dan Losquadro.
