This Friday (02/02/07) sees the annual Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania tradition of Groundhog Day!
Every year Punxsutawney Phil (The Groundhog) emerges at around 7.25am (around 12.25pm UK time) and 'prognosticates' on whether there will be an early spring, or if there will be a prolonged winter. If he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.
Last year Phil saw his shadow and so there was to be six more weeks of winter!
