The best and most ‘reliable’ of all weather forecasters, groundhog Punxsutawney Phil has spoken moments ago.

Legend has it if our furry friend casts a shadow on Groundhog Day, February 2nd, the US can expect six more weeks of winter-like weather. If not, that means spring is around the corner.

Phil’s handler stated: “Up early this morning, Far from home, Are you searching for the Phil-osopher’s stone? Well, even my best friends, they don’t know, is it an early spring, or just more snow? My faithful followers, your hands (and my paws) are getting cold, so here is my forecast, not lead, but solid gold: I see my royal Shadow! Six more weeks of Winter to go!”

Back in 1993, Columbia Pictures released the classic movie, “Groundhog Day,” starring Bill Murray.

Ever since then, crowds numbering as high as 30,000 have started to visit Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney on February 2nd, making it the biggest touristic event of the year for the region.

If it’s any consolidation, Staten Island’s Chuck, a rival weather predicting animal, declared today that spring is around the corner.

Who is your money on?
