Did The Groundhog See His Shadow in 2011?

It's the biggest day of the year for the town of Punxsutawney, where thousands gather at Gobbler's Knob to watch a humble groundhog try to predict the weather.

As a huge winter storm paralyzed much of the United States with snow, ice and freezing rain.

The most recent storm that swept across the U.S. affected about one-third of the country; approximately 100 million people. For this people, spring can't come soon enough.

So, did the groundhog see his shadow today February 2, 2011? What was his prediction?

The 2011 groundhog saw no shadow this Groundhog’s Day, so that means an early spring.

Punxsutawney Phil emerged just after dawn to make his 125th annual weather forecast in front of a crowd who braved muddy, icy conditions to hear his handlers reveal that he had not seen his shadow.

After a tough and freezing winter people across the States, especially those from the Midwest to the Northeast, will be glad to hear that the groundhog did not see his shadow.

In keeping with tradition, tuxedo-clad handlers announced the news to a smaller-than-usual crowd. Freezing rain kept most people indoors.
