Six more weeks of winter or an early spring? Hundreds will gather at the Holtsville Ecology Site to hear Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro announce Holtsville Hal’s famous forecast. Superintendent Losquadro will reveal Hal’s forecast at approximately 7:25 a.m. Although he’s sure to be the center of attention, Holtsville Hal will not be the only animal available for viewing. Following the ceremony, residents are welcome to enjoy some free hot chocolate and visit the Animal Preserve with more than 100 animals on display. Residents are asked to arrive as close to 7 a.m. as possible to get a good view of Hal.
