Today is February 2nd better known as Groundhog Day. This is where we let a groundhog determine if we are getting six more weeks of Winter or if Spring will come early this year.

The groundhog's name is Punxsutawney Phil and the ceremony to find out the question of more Winter or early Spring took place this morning in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. It is an elaborate ceremony with men dressed up in tuxedos and top hats and women dressed to the nines

The ceremony is put on by the Punxsutawney Groundhog club. It has been in existence since 1887. The ceremony is at Gobblers Knob and basically lets the groundhog becomes a weatherman and forecast the weather.

So what was his prediction? Here ya go.

Well, there you go. Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow which means six more weeks of Winter will be. Are you tired of all this cold? Well, It looks like we are going to have to deal with it for at least 6 more weeks.

But hey what does a groundhog really know anyway LOL?
