Today is the day--Groundhog Day. If I have my notes straight on this Punxsutawney Phil (the official Groundhog Day Groundhog) sticks his head out of his burrow to forecast the weather on February 2. If he sees his shadow, he is frightened back into his hole for another long six weeks of winter. If, on the other hand, he sees no shadow, he comes out to play--Spring is only six weeks away!

Now here is my question: With all the people milling around just outside his hole and making lots of noise, wouldn't that frighten Phil back into his burrow? And besides that, with all the media around with their lights and cameras, I don't understand how he would ever not see his shadow.
