The world's most famous groundhog saw his shadow Monday morning, predicting this already long winter will last for six more weeks.
Punxsutawney Phil emerged just after dawn in front of an estimated 13,000 witnesses, many dressed in black-and-gold to celebrate the Pittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl victory the night before.
Well, Punxsutawney Phil is not the only one though (may be in Pennsylvania). Let's see, there are, according to Ingrid Peritz of Globalmail:
Wiarton Willie of Ontario, Canada,;
Buckeye Chuck of Marion, Ohio,
General Beauregard Lee of Yellow Rivwe Game Ranch, Georgia;
Shubenacadie Sam of Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park, Nova Scotia,; and
Balzac Billy of Balzac, eight kilometres north of Calgary.
Today they have all seen their shadow today, so there will be six more weeks of winter. (May be they are equally or even more accurate than the Accuweather meteorologists.)
