Happy Groundhog Day

So Punxsatawney Phil saw his shadow and says we're getting another six weeks of winter. But our local Staten Island-based groundhog, Chuck, didn't see any freakin' shadow. So spring will spring in New York first, my friends.

Of course, this winter in New York has hovered around 50 degrees, so how big a deal would it be if Chuck was dead wrong?

A special shout-out to Senator Chuck Schumer, who participated in Staten Island's version of the 2/2 ritual. Schumer, as it turns out, was named for our local groundhog, so that's pretty weird.
