Punxsutawney Phil Predicts Six More Weeks of Winter

Posted on February 2, 2014

Today is both Groundhog Day and Super Bowl Sunday. Punxsutawney Phil comes out of his burrow on Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania every Groundhog Dog to make his annual predict. Phil saw his shadow this morning which there will be six more weeks of winter. This is something most people are not in the mood for as this winter has been very cold and icy for most of the country.

A scroll was read that said, "A Super Bowl winner I will not predict, But my weather forecast, you cannot contradict, That's not a football lying beside me. It's my shadow you see. So, six more weeks of winter it shall be!"

Here is a video of the groundhog's announcement. A hat cam video from the groundhog's inner circle is also available. Take a look:
