Six More Weeks of Winter


LOT Orange Team, Staff Writers

On February 2, 2021, groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, PA.  Originally started in 1887, this Pennsylvania Dutch tradition is used to predict if spring is coming.  Unfortunately, the winter of 2021 is not over as Phil predicted there will be six more weeks of winter.  Some people were not happy to hear that winter is not over.  Cencere Finely said, “The groundhog is not very nice with giving us more winter.” Kianna Mcgregory had the opposite reaction, “This makes me happy as I like winter.”  But Yaquelyn Vanegas disagreed with everyone, “I don’t really go outside, so winter doesn’t matter to me! It would be nice to go outside without a coat, though.”
