What’s Up Peekskill? It’s February, and winter is both longer and shorter

It’s a battle of the ground hogs! Punxsutawney Phil says more winter. He’s usually about 30% right. Staten Island Chuck says spring is in the air. She’s about 80% right. Time will tell. In the meantime, Peekskill has some rockin’ to do.
