Puxsutawney Phil Sees His Shadow, More Winter Ahead

The famous groundhog known as Puxsutawney Phil has come out of the ground and has seen his shadow. This of course means that there will be more winter ahead for us this year. Though not entirely accurate, this superstition and tradition dates back to at least 1887 when the Inner Circle was first established in Puxsutawney Pennsylvania. This year marks the 128th consecutive year of this celebration across America of Groundhog Day.

Puxsutawney Phil Sees His Shadow, More Winter Ahead

While many are looking to get a prediction on the Super Bowl today, Puxsutawney Phil predicted a longer winter for us.This morning at 7:28am Eastern Time, the famous groundhog made his way out of his burrow to the delight of thousands of screaming onlookers. Thousands had gathered as part of this annual tradition to celebrate the “Seer of Seers” known as Puxsutawney Phil. While many are looking to get a prediction on the Super Bowl today, Puxsutawney Phil predicted a longer winter for us.

The tradition is that if the groundhog sees his shadow on February 2nd, there will be 6 more weeks of winter. This tradition came over to America courtesy of the many German settlers who migrated to Pennsylvania. These Germans celebrated what is known as Candlemas Day in Europe, which is based on the tradition that if there was enough sunshine to see your shadow on February 2nd, then there would be cold weather in the coming months. Don’t blame the groundhog for the coming weather, as he is just the messenger. He does not create the weather, he’s just smart enough to predict it.

This year has certainly brought some strange weather to the North Eastern US, as the Polar Vortex hit hard earlier this year. Cold Winter storms and plenty of snowfall have been commonplace this winter in the New England area, as well as other less likely places further South. This might lead some to think that this smart groundhog may be on to something this year with his prediction.
