New Jersey Hermit Crab Forecasts Early Summer

People look to the groundhog to predict the arrival of spring. But in one Jersey shore town, it’s a hermit crab that prognosticates the arrival of summer.

Ocean City’s Martin Z. Mollusk saw its shadow on Thursday, meaning summer will start early.

Forget that it was foggy and the 40th anniversary event had to be moved inside the Music Pier. Big Mama the Llama, from Bready Farms in Tuckahoe, shook her head in agreement.

John and Kathy Hertzler of Carlisle, Pennsylvania, were in town to celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary.

John Hertzler tells The Press of Atlantic City they showed up to watch the shameless promotion because of their familiarity with Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil and the fact “there’s nothing to do in Ocean City at this time of year.”/
