Groundhog Day 2019: Punxsutawney Phil predicts an early spring

After a frigid week in North Iowa and Southern Minnesota, Punxsutawney Phil predicts and early spring for us all!

Phil’s prediction usually brings thousands of people to see what he’s going to predict.

But don’t get too excited, he’s usually wrong with his prediction.  But there is hope…the first day of meteorological spring is March 1st, while the actual first day of spring is Wednesday March 20th. That’s just a little over 45 days away.
