Happy Groundhog Day!

 

 

Punxsutawney Phil made his winter forecast  this morning around 7:25AM, shortly followed by Woody, Michigan's very own groundhog.  Neither groundhog saw their shadow, so will this mean that we are in for a short winter?? 

More so, is there any real correlation between the groundhog seeing it's shadow and the upcoming monthly temperatures??? 

Read more about how the folklore of "Groundhog Day" came to be, and how Punxsutawney Phil's weather predictions match up with actual temperature outcomes.
