Groundhog Day: Is It Realistic?

Groundhog Day: Is It Realistic?


Just how accurate is Puxatawney Phil? Yes, that is his name. Every February 2nd, the plump little critter decides on the season to come. But with global worming on the rise, the meteorologist might just be at a loss.

If he sees his shadow, we will get six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, we will get an early spring. This year Phil failed to see his shadow on this Groundhog Day 2013. According to the Groundhog legend, that means an early spring! On the other hand, according to, Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow 100 out of 116 times. That doesn't sound like he landed the correct answer all 116 times...


According to, Punxsutawney Phil has only been correct approximately 39% of the time. Yeah, so I guess we won't be paying much attention to this guy anymore.
