Punxsutawney Phil Sees Shadow, Spring Arrives, Teachers Go On Strike

Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania is a happening place. Today, after the recent cold conditions, Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow, and Spring is apparently here. Teachers in the Punxsutawney School District have decided to keep on celebrating by calling a strike.

According to an Associated Press article, the teachers of the Punxsutawney Area Education Association have notified the district that they plan to strike beginning Monday, February 4.

All classes will be cancelled until further notice, said Superintendent J. Thomas Frantz.

As for me, the toughest decision is whether to wear my Hawaiian shirt out in subfreezing conditions to tonight's Groundhog Day party.
