It's no surprise all eyes this morning were on groundhog Phil's burrow at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, as , is wrong more than his northern rival.
Beau, from 1994 to 2009, had only a 31-percent average accuracy rate, according to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. But the famous Punxsutawney Phil, who this morning saw his shadow and predicts six more weeks of winter, hasn't done much better.
The newspaper reports Phil during the same period was on average correct 50 percent of the time. With warm winter weather so far down , one has to wonder if this is another wrong year for the Marmota monax.
Lilburn Patch caught up with General Beauregard Lee before Groundhog Day—see what he had to say in the video—and and predicts an early spring. Which rodent do you think got it right?
Are we in for six more weeks of winter? Is Phil correct and will this season show us the worst it has to offer? Or is Beau right and spring is around the corner? Which do you prefer—more cold weather or an early start to spring? Tell us in the comments.
