Punxsutawney Phil Saw His Shadow on Groundhog's Day 2011

Punxsutawney Phil was pulled from his burrow for the annual Groundhog's Day winter weather prediction and saw his shadow. The Gobbler's Knob event indicates that winter will come to an early end this year according to lore. Today's event was only the 16th time since 1887 that the groundhog did see his shadow.

If Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, legend has it six more weeks of winter would have been in store.
