It’s Groundhog Day, but don’t put too much stock in what Punxsutawney Phil says about when springtime will arrive.  He’s only been right 39% of the time.  You’d be better off flipping a coin. Ironically what PETA would rather we do. But his prediction this year was:

EARLY SPRING (Again he might not be accurate a lot but I am totally in for this! Thanks Phil)

Some fun facts:
