Groundhog Day
FILE - In this Feb. 2, 2012 file photo, Groundhog Club handler Ron Ploucha holds Punxsutawney Phil, the weather prognosticating groundhog, during the 126th celebration of Groundhog Day on Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa. Groundhog Day is Saturday, and the community is holding its welcome-back bash for the famous winter-weather prognosticator _ the so-called seer of seers and sage of sages. Legend has it that if the groundhog sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last six more weeks. No shadow means an early spring. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar, File)
