Happy Groundhog Day!

Punxsutawney Phil is scheduled to emerge from his burrow early in the morning on Gobbler’s Knob in Pennsylvania to make his prediction on the rest of winter.

If he sees his shadow, six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, there will be an early spring, according to groundhogday.org.
