The moment of truth has arrived — will we have to endure six more weeks of winter, or will spring come early this year?! All eyes were on Punxsutawney Phil, waiting to see if he saw his shadow on Groundhog Day, and the prediction is in. Find out out what went down here!
Did Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow on Groundhog Day 2016?! The annual ritual went down at Gobbler’s Knob in Pennsylvania on Feb. 2, and we now officially know whether or not it will be a long winter or early spring this year. Find out what Phil predicted here!
And he DIDN’T SEE his shadow! That means WE’RE GETTING AN EARLY SPRING! Phil was a BIT feisty this morning, but once his handlers got him under control, he got the job done!
For more than 100 years, Phil has been emerging from his burrow at Gobbler’s Knob at sunrise to predict the weather for the upcoming months. In both 2014 and 2015, he saw his shadow, and we suffered some pretty brutal winters! If you don’t believe in the power of Phil yet, you might want to consider starting!
Remember, Punxsutawney Phil is the only TRUE predictor of the weather, and there are plenty of impostors, so make sure this is the viewing you’re following. As the ritual goes, Phil drinks a secret groundhog recipe every summer that tacks seven years onto his life, which is how he’s been able to stay alive for so long to keep making these predictions. It’s a tough job to have all this pressure every year, but this little guy has held up pretty well for all these years, don’t you think?!
