Punxsutawney Phil predicts 6 more weeks of winter



There was no crowd gathering in Punxsutawney this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but there are still plenty of people trying to find out if Phil saw his shadow or not.

The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club was kind enough to share a livestream of their whole Groundhog Day event, including a pre-recorded preshow that began airing at 6:30 a.m. The live event itself began at 7:15 a.m.

If you’re here reading this, they you probably didn’t see the stream live. So without further ado, here are the results:

Phil saw his shadow (according to his official handlers in the Groundhog Club) which means, according to tradition, we are in for six more weeks of winter.

Looking outside at the aftermath of a snowstorm, it’s easy to believe that prediction may well come true. Either way, it’s a good idea to bundle up if you head outside any time soon.
