At 7:25, this Saturday morning, amidst overcast an overcast sky, and frigid degree temperatures, Phil the Groundhog failed to see his shadow in the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
According to folklore, no shadow for Phil means that there will be an early Spring this year. Woohoo!
Since the Groundhog’s first prediction in 1887, Phil has seen his shadow one hundred times and has not seen it on just sixteen occasions, with nine missing years in the record.
I’m putting my faith into Phil’s prediction that we’ll get an early Spring this year.
