Phil’s Prediction

Happy Groundhog's Day everyone!

Today in Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney Phil came out to give everyone his prediction for the rest of winter.

Phil today did not see his shadow giving his prediction of an early spring.

The American tradition has been going on for over 130 years where Phil has only predicted an early spring 20 times.

Every Groundhog's Day, Phil makes his prediction in Gobbler's Knob which started in 1886.  Before, the prediction occurred in the woods near a neighboring community.
