PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. -- The groundhog has spoken! Punxsutawney Phil emerged from his oak stump and saw his shadow Thursday morning, which means he's predicting six more weeks of winter.
Thousands gathered outside the groundhog's home on Gobbler's Knob, a tiny hill in the town for which he's named, located about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Phil's prediction this year may come as a surprise to many, because much of the U.S. has been enjoying unseasonably warm weather.
Regardless of what the groundhog says, spring officially starts March 20.
