Did the Groundhog See His Shadow?

Will it be an early spring or six more weeks of winter? Find out what the furry forecaster had to say when he peeked out of his home in Punxsutawney.

On a chilly Saturday morning, it's hard not to wish that Punxsutawney Phil missed his shadow when he crawled out of his home to make his prediction. To the delight of the freezing masses gathered around Gobbler's Knob, Phil declared that there was no shadow to see, promising an early spring this year.

According to the Stormfax Weather Almanac, Phil has correctly predicted the weather only 39 percent of the time since 1887. Still, with a week that saw 60 degree weather followed days after by snow blasts, getting the weather report from a woodland creature does not seem all that outlandish.

Continue to stay warm, and we'll find out soon if good ol' Phil was right this time.
