Did the Groundhog see his shadow?

I sure hope not!! I am so sick of the cold. So according to the Reuters, "if the groundhog emerges from his burrow on February 2 and sees his shadow, he will be frightened back into his hole, presaging another six weeks of winter. A cloudy day -- and no shadow -- means winter will end early."

Well according to
Punxsutawney Phil we will see six more weeks of winter. According to bloomberg.com, Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his burrow this morning and saw his shadow. :(

For those that didn't know, this was the 122nd annual weather predication and out of those 122 times, the groundhog has seen his shadow 97 times since 1887. I think those people need to leave "Phil" in his burrow and let him come out when he wants too. LOL.

So here is another Boo for Punxsutawney Phil!!
