Crustacean Martin Z. Mollusk predicts early arrival of summer

Posted: Updated:
OCEAN CITY -

It's the Jersey Shore's version of Groundhog Day as a special crustacean predicted when summer will arrive.
 
 
For the 38th year in a row, hermit crab Martin Z. Mollusk crept onto the Ocean City beach to search for his shadow.


In the years when Martin sees his shadow, summer is said to arrive one week early.


Dr. Ernest Frankenstein is responsible for helping Martin find his shadow...
 
 
"I've been hired, with my magnifying glass, to determine whether Martin Mollusk sees his shadow and doggonit, he did it again, that means, summer is coming early to Ocean City in 2013," said Ron McClosky, also known as Dr. Frankenstein.
 
Martin has seen his shadow every year except 1985, when he saw a partial shadow, and summer came three and a half days early.
