Hang in there chilly willys, spring is fast approaching. The frigid weather is about to come to an end, if you believe in the psychic weather powers of a rodent. Punxsutawney Phil, the famous groundhog from Gobbler’s Knob, Pennsylvania, emerged from his cozy home before 20,000 people on Saturday morning to perform his yearly duty: find his shadow. After close consultation with the “seer of seers”, Bill Deeley, president of Phil’s “Inner Circle,” announced that the fuzzy sage had not seen his shadow and winter would soon come to an end. Good riddance.
