Punxsutawney Phil: Longer winter; Groundhog dropped by Mayor de Blasio

Punxsutawney Phil isn't really needed this year to tell us that we’re in for a long and nasty winter, but the groundhog confirmed it by seeing his shadow early Sunday morning. Undoubtedly, we are in for six more weeks of winter in a winter we won’t soon forget, according to an CBS News report on Sunday.

Besides Punxsutawaney, Pennsylvania Phil not having good winter news for us, New York’s Staten Island Chuck had the same bad news in confirming more winter, too. During the New York City festivities, new mayor – Mayor Bill de Blasio – dropped the groundhog he was trying to handle.

Publicly, this winter is turning out to be a bad one of Mayor de Blasio. He made page-two headlines a couple of weeks ago when he was out shoveling his sidewalk in front of his residence. As the press’ video recorders were rolling and cameras were snapping photos, the new mayor was throwing his over-abundance of snow onto the city’s street – which, of course, is against the law.

De Blasio might want to find his office and get some city work done.

Regarding New York City’s Punxsutawney Phil, he survived the drop.
