According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a Punxsutawney Phil emerges from his burrow then spring  will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks. Please, please, please do not see your shadow Punxsutawney Phil! Wait, we believe a groundhog predicts the weather, SAY WHAT?!?

If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Come, Winter, have another flight;
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Go Winter, and come not again.
