If he sees his shadow, be prepared for six more weeks of winter weather. If there is no shadow to be found, then spring is just around the corner!
So - today is Groundhog Day - a regular holiday in Pennsylvania. Tens of thousands of people travel to Punxsutawney before the sunrise. They have to park miles away and take shuttles into town. And from what I understand, the average Joe can't even get near enough to see Phil, the world's most famous groundhog. Punxsutawney Phil emerges from his warm burrow at about 7:30 am to greet the tens of thousands of people who have made the trek to Gobbler's Knob, outside of Punxsutawney, PA.
