Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring
Groundhog Phil from the town of Punxsutawney (Pennsylvania, USA) predicted on Saturday, February 2, an early spring, reports USA Today.
Groundhog pulled out of the hole on the hill, Gobbler-Nob. According to local legend, if the animal is frightened of his own shadow and hides in a burrow, it means winter will last for another 1.5 month. If the weather is cloudy and Phil does not see his shadow, then it is expected the early arrival of spring.

I think this accurately represents how many people feel on #GroundhogDay2019 (although “they say” it’ll be 60 degrees Fahrenheit on Tuesday, it’s 11 degrees outside right now…I have lost my faith in warm weather) pic.twitter.com/TXXZI6tREj
