Punxsutawney Phil predicts more winter on Groundhog Day | USA TODAY
Punxsutawney Phil, the world’s most famous groundhog, will be coaxed from his burrow in western Pennsylvania early Wednesday, Feb. 2, as a pandemic-stressed nation watches to find out whether we’ll have an early spring or six more weeks of cold and snow.
According to legend, if it’s sunny and Phil sees his shadow, the scared groundhog returns to his burrow and the USA will endure six more weeks of winter. If it’s cloudy when the groundhog emerges Feb. 2, the critter won’t see his shadow and will leave his burrow, meaning winter will soon end and an early start to spring is coming.
