Did the groundhog see his shadow? Watch here

PUNXSUTAWNEY PA- FEBRUARY 2 Punxsutawney Phil relaxes in his cage after he saw his shadow predicting six more weeks of winter

OH is in for six more weeks of winter according to Chuck's representatives from WMRN radio, who announced that he had seen his shadow on a clear morning in Marion. On Groundhog Day, the superstition is the same - a Pennsylvania groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil is just the one who does the interpreting.

Groundhog Day has been celebrated for 130 years as groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, each year predicts the end of winter. "My faithful followers, I could clearly see a handsome, flawless shadow of me".

One editor has made that possible, and you can watch every day in Groundhog Day at the same time after the jump. And Staten Island Chuck, a famous groundhog at the Staten Island Zoo in NY, is sometimes "played" by a female groundhog. And then, on the count of three, his handlers (wearing protective gloves that they would sorely need) brought Phil out. "Since the tradition began, he's seen his shadow more than 100 times and hasn't seen it 18 times".

You did know that MA has an official State groundhog, didn't you? "Since you've been up all night and starting to tottle, I, Punxsutawney Phil, shall not dawdle", the proclamation read. Perhaps the truth lies in your level of optimism and dedication to Groundhog Day.

"Phil has had a spotty record over the past 30 years, predicting the weather correctly only about half the time", according to a national report by USA Today.

Because, you know, in the movie Murray's character keeps reliving Groundhog Day, over and over and over again, waking up to the same radio station playing the same Sonny and Cher song, "I Got You Babe", over and over and over again.

The tradition is popular in the United States and Canada, with crowds typically spending a night partying before eagerly awaiting to see what the weather is like when the rodent emerges. But being that the nation's most famous groundhog has no meteorological training, I set out to check the accuracy of our furry friend's forecasts.

"Spring is arriving 20 days earlier than a long-term average (1981-2010) in much of the Southeastern U.S.", USA-NPN concludes.
