It’s official: 6 more weeks of winter

Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow at Gobbler’s Knob

Members of the most famous groundhog’s “Inner Circle” woke him up at 7:25 a.m., as tradition dictates.

And indeed, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow.

For us humans, that means six more weeks of winter.

Last year, Phil offered an additional caveat as his prediction was delivered virtually due to #COVID19 concerns: “After winter, you’re looking forward to one of the most beautiful and brightest springs you’ve ever seen.”

Let’s hope Phil offers the same prediction of beauty and brightness for spring 2022.
