Punxsutawney Phil made his appearance this morning and fans of winter have something to cheer about. Phil says there will be six more weeks of winter. That prediction came as he saw his shadow this morning in western Pennsylvania on Groundhog Day.

It's the February 2nd tradition that's been going on for 137 years. Groundhog-dot-org says Pennsylvania's earliest settlers began celebrating Groundhog Day in the 1800s. Gobbler's Knob, where Phil hangs out, was packed with over 20-thousand fans to cheer him on.
