Verdict is in: 6 More Weeks of Winter

According to folklore, our most famous rodent Groundhog Phil’s sighting of his own shadow on February 2nd means there will be 6 more weeks of winter left for the Northeast United States. Had Phil not seen his shadow, it would have meant “there will be an early spring.”

Since the Groundhog’s first prediction in 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 99 times and failed to spot it just 16 times. So for those of you heading to NYC - bundle up! Looks like winter isn't quite over yet.
