GROUNDHOG DAY

Punxsutawney Phil Sees More Winter

In news that isn’t surprising to anyone alive, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicts six more weeks of winter. The groundhog is the go-to woodland creature for making U.S. seasonal weather predictions. Versions of Punxsutawney Phil have been forecasting winter weather since 1887, and Phil has failed to see his shadow only 17 of those years. In related news, the Northeast is bracing for its second major snowstorm of the season, and Chicago got more than a foot over the weekend.
