Did The Groundhog See Its Shadow?

Find out what Punxsutawney Phil had to say about the next six weeks' weather.

For more than 125 years, on February 2, a groundhog ceremoniously emerges from his burrow on Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Penn. to predict the weather for the rest of the winter season.

Legend has it that if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, then there will be six weeks of more winter weather. If he doesn't see his shadow, spring will come early.

According to the Washington Post,  Phil emerged from his home this morning just before 7:30 a.m. and did not see his shadow. Early spring it is!

Not sure that you trust the odds of letting Phil predict upcoming weather? (He has been known to be wrong in the past.) Maybe Staten Island Chuck's is your guy.

Last year, Chuck and Phil were at odds with Chuck predicting an early spring and Phil calling for six more weeks of winter. 

However, CNN reports that this year Chuck agreed with Phil, and both hogs are predicting a return to warmer temps in the near future
