Punxsutawney Phil's Forecast

09/26/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

Bad news: Noted groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow at 7:20 this morning in his Pennsylvania town. In fact, there was snow on the ground. This means, if the legend is true, that winter is due to be around for another six weeks. Phil sure didn't beat the odds. According to the Casino site Intertops.com, he was predicted to see that darned shadow. The odds stood at 2 to 9. Since 1887, the groundhog has seen his shadow 90% of the time.
