Did the Groundhog See Its Shadow?

Punxsutawney Phil predicts six more weeks of winter.

Did the Groundhog See Its Shadow?

Just in case you don't follow  @GroundhogPhil on twitter and you haven't heard the news swirling around  facebook, we'll let you on today's big announcement.

Pennsylvania's most famous groundhog emerged from his hole this morning and saw his shadow.

This means Punxsutawney Phil is predicting six more weeks of winter. Not so bad when you consider the weather we have been having so far. 

Phil has been predicting winter outlooks for the last 126 years. However, he is only correct around 40% of the time. 

If the groundhog emerges on Feb. 2 sees his shadow and returns to his hole, winter is said to last six more weeks. If the groundhog does not see his shadow, an early spring is sure to be on the horizon.
