Groundhog Phil predicted an early spring

the Famous Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicted the Americans an early spring. Like a year ago, the Groundhog forecaster from the town of Punxsutawney in Pennsylvania saw his shadow. Cloudy weather 2 Feb just portends early arrival of spring.

According to tradition, if February 2, the Groundhog from Punxsutawney, leaving a hole, sees his shadow, gets scared and hides back, then there are six frosty weeks. If the animal sees its shadow, and quietly leaves the hole — on the contrary, it portends an early spring. First Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney officially celebrated on 2 February 1887.

traditions are supported by the members of the “inner circle” who gather in the woods Gobblers-Nob, dressed in black coats and top hats. Marmot recovered from the makeshift hole, after which, according to the “inner circle” he tells the head of the organization, whether the winter is long or spring will soon come. The world famous American Groundhog Day was due to released in 1993, the Comedy starring bill Murray and Andie MacDowell.

“Spring will come early, that’s for sure,” reads the prediction, which was read by the representative of the “inner circle” this time.
