本集内容

China's stranded travellers 中国大批滞留旅客

Groundhog Phil predicts the weather 土拔鼠菲尔预测天气

文字稿

Now, if you've had a tough commute recently, spare a thought for these rail passengers in China – 50,000 of them have been left stranded in the southern city of Guangzhou. Bad weather is hampering the country's busiest travel period, the Lunar New Year getaway. Extra trains are being laid on to try and clear the backlog.

如果你最近碰到了上下班旅途不顺的一天,不妨想想中国这些滞留途中的旅客。已有五万人被困在了中国南方广州市火车站。恶劣的天气严重阻碍了中国春运高峰期的铁路运行。现在有关部门正在增调列车试图输送滞留旅客。

If you're fed up of winter, here's some good news for you from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. They've just had their annual Groundhog Festival at Gobbler's Knob and it's all to record the weather prediction of this chap here, the resident groundhog Punxsutawney Phil, to the crowd's delight. Phil failed to see his own shadow so that means he believes there's going to be an early spring.

如果你厌烦了冬天,那么这里有一则来自美国宾夕法尼亚旁苏托尼(Punxsutawney)镇的好消息。每年一度的传统节日土拨鼠日刚刚在一个叫做火鸡丘的地方(Gobbler's Knob)举行。当时,“旁苏托尼”最著名的天气预测土拨鼠“菲尔”公布了今年的天气预测结果,博得观众欢喜。“菲尔”没有看到他自己的影子,据民间传说称,这意味着我们将迎来一个早春。
