PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. — Pennsylvania’s famous groundhog Punxsutawney (puhnk-suh-TAW’-nee) Phil has emerged from his lair and saw his shadow, in the process predicting six more weeks of winter.

But, at this rate, that might not be so bad.

The groundhog made his “prediction” on Gobbler’s Knob, a tiny hill in the town for which he’s named about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!
