Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow this morning when he popped out of his hole.  Nothing like waking up to 10-15 thousand people and television cameras, haha.

Crowds were down in Punxsutawney, PA this year because of a winter weather warning, which ended up not happening.

Three cheers for an early spring!!!!!!!!!!!!
