Groundhog Day 2012: Punxsutawney Phil's Forecast Is In

In the afterglow of early morning fireworks on Groundhog Day 2012, the Inner Circle of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania—human handlers of the word's most famous groundhog—took the stage at rural Gobbler's Knob to introduce what Vice President Mike Johnston called "the Great Oz of weather forecasting."

"Using a chirp and a click and a wink of an eye," Johnston said, Punxsutawney Phil had just signaled to the Inner Circle that he'd seen his shadow—meaning, according to legend, six more weeks of winter.

Now in its 126th year, the annual Groundhog Day event is still going strong and even attracting a growing overseas crowd.
