Saw his shadow. From Anthony
Still better than the Met Office
Punxsutawney Phil is held by Ben Hughes after emerging this morning from his burrow on Gobblers Knob in Punxsutawney. Phil saw his shadow and forecast six more weeks of winter weather.
Don�t put those cold weather clothes in storage just yet.
Punxsutawney Phil, the internationally known weather prognosticating groundhog, saw his shadow this morning and predicted six more weeks of winter.
Thousands gathered on Gobbler�s Knob in Jefferson County to await the groundhog�s annual prediction. The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club said Phil has seen his shadow 98 times since 1887, hasn�t seen it 15 times, and there are no records for nine years.
Original story from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Could have told anyone that -- El Nino is declining but it will be months before the effects manifest. Arctic oscillation is picking up as well.
Not cold here but everywhere else is and will stay freezing for the near future...
