Punxsutawney Phil Predicts 6 More Weeks of Winter

PUNXSUTAWNEY, PA - FEBRUARY 2: Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow predicting six more weeks of winter during 131st annual Groundhog Day festivities on February 2, 2017 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Groundhog Day is a popular tradition in the United States and Canada. A smaller than usual crowd this year of less than 20,000 people spent a night of revelry awaiting the sunrise and the groundhog's exit from his winter den. If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his den. Early spring arrives if he does not see his shadow, causing Phil to remain above ground. (Photo by Jeff Swensen/Getty Images)

Buckle up buttercup, winter isn’t over yet, at least according to Punxsutawney Phil. Today is Groundhog Day, a day that supposedly determines whether or not we will get 6 more weeks of winter or catch a break.

This year…the groundhog has spoken. 6 MORE WEEKS OF WINTER. This is the 106th time the little furry fellow has seen his shadow predicting more winter in the 135 year tradition.
