..and not just in the California bay area! Phil from Punxsutawney, Philadelphia has risen from Gobbler’s Knob, located in a rural area about two miles east of the town, today and has not seen his shadow, so winter shall be coming to end end everywhere. Even in Dallas where the Superbowl is snowed in.
While his handlers and fans insist that he is more than 120 years old and that he drinks a special “elixir of life” called Groundhog Punch each year to extend his longevity, scientists maintain that groundhogs have a typical lifespan of about six years. Either way, a groundhog has been making weather forecasts since the late 1800s. If Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole, the US is in for six more weeks of winter. If Phil does not see his shadow, the country can expect an early spring.
I wonder what Bill Murray has to say about this?
