Punxsutawney Phil came out and made his prediction, so for the Northland, does that mean anything?

According to lore, when Phil sees his shadow and we have 6 more weeks of winter if he comes out and doesn't see his shadow we have an early spring. For us, in the northland, we usually get a long winter anyway. The record according to stormfax is 104 times he has seen his shadow, 20 times not seeing a shadow, and 9 times there was no record.

This year stormfax says that Phil came out at 7:26 am and did not see his shadow, which means, and early spring. Punxsutawney PA even had a live feed for everyone to see.  There is more to the celebration than just Phill coming out and seeing or not seeing his shadow. There are wine tasting events and a whole weekend of celebrations.

By the way, this is the first year that Groundhog Day and the Super Bowl were held on the same day.
