Groundhogs Gone Wild

February 2nd marks Groundhog Day. February 2nd, 2011 also marks the first year since 2007 that Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow. 

What does it mean for our weather since Phil didnt see his shadow?  Spring will come sooner compared to if he had seen his shadow, which would have meant we could expect another six weeks of cold weather.

The supersticious tradition started in 1886.  According the the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, the groundhog has seen his shadow 98 times but has gone without seeing his shadow only 14 times.
