WATCH: Punxy Phil vs. Gen. Beau Lee
Columbia, SC – (WOLO) Tuesday morning in Pennsylvania Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow. That means an early Spring is on the way. Don’t break out those shorts just yet though, Phil doesn’t have the best track record. Since 1988, he’s been right 13 times and wrong 15.
Meanwhile in Georgia, General Beauregard Lee at the Yellow River Game Ranch near Atlanta did not see his shadow either. That means an early Southern Spring. Seems ‘Ol Beau and Phil in Punxsutawney agree this year.
Details from the Yellow River Game Ranch: “Enticed by the smell of Waffle House ‘scattered, smothered and covered’ hash browns just outside his mansion door, Gen. Beau awoke at 7:34am to a balmy 56 degrees as a heavy fog lay across the Game Ranch. He did not see his shadow, foretelling an early Spring for the Sunny South.”
