I just read this online in the Washington Post:
At 7:25 a.m. this morning Groundhog Phil saw his shadow in the little town of Punxsutawney, Pa. According to folklore, Phil’s sighting of his own shadow means there will be 6 more weeks of winter. But just how accurate is the prognosticator of prognosticators? It depends on the source. is the official website of Punxsutawney Phil, and perhaps not impartial, it claims the Groundhog has issued a correct forecast 100% of the time. AccuWeather's grade for the groundhog's accuracy is slightly lower, but still quite respectable.

Enjoy the weather, wherever you are :)

Six more weeks of winter would take us to mid-March, which would still be
an early spring in Edmonton, so I guess it's good to live in a place where you don't have to worry about Ground Hog Day. I still enjoy the movie. It has to be a highlight of Bill Murray's career.
