NO SHADOW! EARLY SPRING!

February 2, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Appropriately beginning a day that pretty much saw all forms of weather — wind, snow, freezing rain, fog and sunshine — in the Weather Capital of the World, Punxsutawney Phil stunned shivering and wet fans at Gobbler's Knob and proclaimed Wednesday that no, he did not see a shadow, and yes, an early spring is on its way.

"The sky is clear; prepare yourself for warmth," Inner Circle Vice-President Mike Johnston said following Punxsy Phil's prognostication, which came on the heels of severe winter storm warnings for the Midwest, Pennsylvania, New York and the Northeast.

Thomas R. Chelgren

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Thomas R. Chelgren was named the 2011 Punxsutawney Man of the Year at Tuesday’s Groundhog Banquet.

Bob “Oral” Roberts, the 2010 Man of the Year, said Chelgren is a Punxsy native and a graduate of PAHS and Jeff Tech.

 Roberts said it’s almost easier to describe what services and activities in which Chelgren has not been involved, but, “In everything he has done, he has served our community in a very selfless and humble manner, always avoiding the spotlight or any praise for his enormous efforts.”

Bad weather — which continues as such — and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ upcoming Super Bowl were running themes during the annual Groundhog Banquet Tuesday evening, where Inner Circle President Bill Deeley cautioned those who would be attending today’s prognostication by Punxsutawney Phil.

“Tomorrow, I have no idea what will happen,” as to whether Punxsy Phil will predict six more weeks of winter or an early spring. “I’ll tap on the door, and he’ll tell me what it will be. If it’s wrong, it’s because I misinterpreted.”
