Punxsutawney - Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley was in attendance as thousands of fans watched as Phil made his highly anticipated weather prognostication, commemorating 127 years of Pennsylvania's unique Groundhog Day tradition.
Pennsylvania's world-famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, predicted an early spring after emerging from his burrow without seeing his shadow this morning in the Pennsylvania Wilds.
According to holiday folklore, if the groundhog emerges in
the early morning on Feb. 2 and does not see his shadow, there will be an early
spring. If he sees his shadow, six more weeks of wintry weather are expected.
The annual event that started with a small group of men known as the Inner
Circle now attracts up to 30,000 visitors to Punxsutawney, located about 80
miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
