Scramble pg 5 1-9-20

EASTFORD — Every year, Punxsutawney Phil emerges from his burrow to predict the weather. However, due to Punxsutawney Phil’s inaccuracy, Scramble the Duck predicts the weather in Eastford, boasting perfect accuracy.
Emerging from a model of the Ivy Glenn Memorial, Scramble waddles down the red carpet and looks for his shadow to predict the weather. The legend goes that if Scramble sees his shadow, more winter is upon New England. If there’s no shadow, spring will come early.
Scramble was the only duckling that hatched and was quite lonely. Scramble adopted his handlers, Micah, Isaac, and Benjamin Torcellini, as his friends.
Scramble then received an education at Stormy Heights Academy, making him a superior prognosticator. This will be Scramble’s sixth year predicting the weather; Scramble boasts a 100 percent accuracy rate—much better than Punxsutawney Phil’s 39 percent.
Duck Day is free and open to the public. The event is at 7:30 a.m. Feb. 2 at the Ivy Glenn Memorial on Rt. 198.
