Original report: On Sunday morning, Punxsutawney Phil will emerge from his burrow on Gobbler's Knob at 7:25 a.m. to throngs of loyalists numbering in the tens of thousands. They will be awaiting the meteorological marmot's soothsaying on the future of our winter ... not that we've really had one yet.
If Phil sees his shadow, keep your shovels handy: six more weeks of winter. No shadow means spring is just around the corner.
Since 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 104 times (records are not available for 10 years).
