Groundhog Day is Feb. 2!

Groundhog Day 2012 is tomorrow, Feb. 2! Phil will leave his burrow at 7:20 AM at Gobblers Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, observe the weather conditions, look for his shadow and then make his prediction for the remainder of winter.

Visit the official website of Punxsutawney Phil to learn more about the history of Groundhog Day and to watch a video of Phil in action!
