6 More Weeks of Winter According to Phil at Punxsutawney

6 More Weeks of Winter According to PhilPunxsutawney Phil of Pennsylvania is the world's most famous forecaster. Phil  popped out of his burrow Sunday morning and saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter while the crowd gathered at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, PA.

According to folklore, if it's cloudy when the groundhog emerges, the critter will leave his burrow, signifying that winter will soon end. If it's a sunny day, Phil will supposedly see his shadow and, frightened, retreat back into his burrow, and winter will continue for six more weeks.

Phil emerged at 7:28 a.m. but quickly retreated. Phil is not always right; 80% correct and 20% wrong. We will soon see if he is correct this year. I hope so!

6 More Weeks of Winter According to Phil

Phil was brought to the podium by a group of local dignitaries known as the Inner Circle, all men clad in top hats and old-fashioned black frock coats. 

This was the 128th time Punxsutawney Phil had made his prediction.

Punxsutawney is pronounced "Punk-sit-taw-nee."

Based on our current weather he seems to be right. Of course he has a 50/50 chance of getting it right and who determines what 'winter' constitutes?

Hi Than,

I agree but it seems in the recent past, Phil has been correct. Snow today on the east coast proves Phil made the right decision. i love spring but cold weather is nice too and snowy pictures are my favorites.

Hi Michael,

The movie "Happy Groundhog Day" is one of my favorite movies. i like a good comedy with some romance. I think it is a classic movie.
