Punxsutawney Phil, the American groundhog famous for his weather predictions, emerged from his burrow atop Gobbler's Knob in Pennsylvania on Friday and saw his shadow, forecasting six more weeks of winter. Because Phil saw his shadow—the legend goes—there will be six more weeks of snow and freezing temperatures. If he did not, an early spring would have been expected. Groundhogs have been offering weather predictions in this tiny town since 1887.
