Happy Groundhog Day everybody!

Since 1887, Punxsutawney Phil has been predicting either an "early" spring or six more weeks of "winter".

This morning, thousands gathered at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to witness the rodent's seeing of his shadow or not.

And...Punxsutawney Phil DID NOT see his shadow this morning which means an early spring!

Note: History shows that 85% of the time he does see his shadow, so for winter haters, we're in luck.

Note: The groundhog's prediction is just tradition and he has no actual credentials to forecast weather.
