The Groundhog Did Not See His Shadow, Which Means Early Spring

Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow this year, which means an early spring.

That would be good news . . . except that lately, Phil has been wrong more often than he’s been right.  Over the past decade, he’s only predicted correctly 40% of the time.

Punxsutawney Phil has been predicting the weather since 1887 and this is only the 20th time he’s predicted early spring.

He’s seen his shadow and predicted a long winter 104 times. And 10 years of records are missing.
