>> The Annual Groundhog Day - Forecast!
Yesterday was Groundhog Day in Pennsylvania and Punxsutawney Phil, as pictured above, predicted 6 more weeks of winter weather! How come? His shadow was visible and that means: more winter. Traditionally, this is a popular event and a tourist magnet. (PS. check out Phils "W.T.F." facial expression..)
Scientifically, the result of this yearly ritual can not really be counted on, or replace the traditional weather forecast, as the National Climatic Data Center had to point out. However, it is cold here too and we believe in Punxsutawney Phil's prediction skills. So 6 more winter weeks it is!
