NOT A HARD DECISION
History shows his accuracy rate to be only 37%, so the decision is not hard. Whether Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow or not on this Groundhog Day, spring will still not officially start until March 20 of this year.
According to Punxsutawney Phil's website, he will emerge from his burrow at 7:20 AM to see or not see his shadow in the Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania annual celebration by the Groundhog Club's Inner Circle.
The Inner Circle is a group of local dignitaries responsible for carrying on the tradition of Groundhog Day every year. They're the ones who are not only responsible for planning the events every year, but they're also responsible for the feeding and care of Phil himself!
I wonder if Buckeye Chuck, of Marion, Ohio, will do any better in his prediction.
