Groundhog Day: See What Punxsutawney Phil Predicts for 2014 (Video)

Groundhog Day: See What Punxsutawney Phil Predicts for 2014Today isn’t just the day of the big game. No, it’s much more than that! It’s Groundhog Day!

It’s been a hellish winter for many parts of our country. Here in New York, we’ve seen record cold temperatures and more snow this year than in many years past. The southern part of country has had snow and been brought to a literal stand still by the unexpected crazy weather. It’s safe to say many of us are pretty excited to say adios to this years winter season and awaiting the chance to usher in sunny skies and nice weather.

Consequently, we are very excited to see the wise groundhog (who is over one hundred years old) make his weather forecast. (Yes, they claim Phil is the one and only groundhog that has ever made the prediction in the past 126 years.)

Just moments ago, Phil emerged from his burrow right on Gobbler’s Knob in front of thousands of followers from all over the world to predict the weather for the rest of winter. You know how it goes: legend says if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

This morning at 7:28 a.m., the world’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil made his declaration, and then the President of Groundhog Club’s Inner Circle read from the famous scroll:

“Well, that’s not a football but a shadow I see. It’s six more weeks of winter. It must be!”

Say it isn’t so, Phil! Looks like he may be right. We are in for more snow here tomorrow. Keep warm folks, and let’s make these next six weeks fly right by!
