PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. — The handlers for  groundhog   Punxsutawney Phil say he's forecasting six more weeks of what already has felt like a brutally long and cold winter.

Pennsylvania's famed   groundhog   emerged from his lair in front of thousands of fans around daybreak Sunday.

Legend has it that if the furry rodent sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another month-and-a-half. If he doesn't see it, spring will come early.

Phil has nothing on me

I confidently predict that winter will end on Thursday, 20 March, just a few minutes past 1:00PM, EST. Predict? No, I guarantee it.

Superbowl prediction? I don't have a clue.

Man that's one fat

Man that's one fat groundhog-no wonder he sees his shadow. More cold????? Hmmmm. I wonder if he is tasty? We should ask the Groundhog about global warming-it would probably be a better predictor than the scientist. I think he is hinting towards another mini-ice age. I would love the irony.
