Groundhog Day

In about an hour at 7:25 AM Punxsutawney Phil will emerge from his burrow in Punxsutwaney, PA. Once a year the world watches from this small Pennsylvania town to see this groundhog predict the weather .
For those who are not familiar with this tradition, Phil is coaxed out of his burrow once a year on February 2nd.
If Phil sees his shadow, there will be six weeks more of winter. However, if Phil does not see a shadow then there will be an early spring.

The question I have is how is Phil not able to see his shadow? With all the media there with their cameras and lights. Besides in the one hundred twenty years plus this tradition has carried on there have only been a few times that Phil has not seen his shadow.

Whether Phil sees his shadow or not, I hope it warms up considerably in the few weeks.

I am getting tired of winter.
