This morning in Gobbler's Knob, PA - Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. That means six more weeks of winter! Have you ever wondered how this "decision" is really made? I have.

Doing some research this morning, I found out these guys in the top hats are the people who REALLY make this decision on winter. Phil's prediction is determined ahead of time by what's called the Inner Circle, a group of people that wear the top hats and tuxedos and decide in advance what the groundhog will predict! I wonder what it takes to get into this mysterious Inner Circle??? Hmmmm...

Regardless, we're looking at 6 more weeks of winter! Which may not be a bad thing, since our snow arrived so late. Right?
