It’s February 2 – National Groundhog Day in the US. Today, the nation will be looking to a groundhog to determine if we’ll have six more weeks of winter or an early spring. According to legend, if the groundhog sees his shadow, he will be scared back into his burrow to endure another six weeks of winter. Punxsutawney Phil is the most famous of these groundhogs, predicting from Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, PA. Punxsutawney Phil may not be as accurate as legend would have you believe: Stormfax puts Phil’s average accuracy at 39% correct. You might have better predictions from flipping a coin – at least it would be closer to 50%.
