Punxsutawney Phil predicts early spring

After Punxsutawny Phil and Staten Island Chuck predicted an early spring, Gordy followed suit. The Inner Circle, wearing their top hats, spoke to Phil in "groundhogese" (which is actually a Pennsylvania Dutch dialect) and asked him. This year, however, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow! Then there's swamp rats in Louisiana and pygmy hedge hogs used in OR to predict spring's arrival.

While Punxsutawney Phil may be the most notable groundhog, he's not the only one, as other municipalities have adopted their own version of the prognosticating rodent. Pennsylvania continues to be the hotspot for all Groundhog Day celebrations even today!

But if Punxsutawney Phil is pulled from his stump and sees his shadow, then you can expect six more weeks of winter.

"There is no predictive skill for the groundhog during the most recent years of the analysis", the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Information states on its website.

Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, focuses on the town's festivities as a backdrop to the leading characters' love story.

Rime developer Tequila Works has announced that it's teaming up with Sony Pictures Virtual Reality to release Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son on the PlayStation VR. The holiday involves people taking candles to church to have them blessed in order to bring good fortune, according to The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.

Staten Island Chuck is getting all the attention for his early spring forecast, but the furry creature's new congressman had the most to say Saturday morning during the borough's annual Groundhog Day ceremony at the Staten Island Zoo.
