Poor little Punxsutawney Phil got a little fright this morning when he saw his shadow.
The people got a major fright when they realized what this actually meant for them: six more weeks of winter.
Thanks a lot, Phil.
Phil’s predictions seem more accurate than any weatherman’s and come just at the right time as the National Weather Service warns of bitterly cold conditions, marked by several periods of snow and subzero wind chills this weekend.
Once again, GREAT.
Snow could hit as early as tonight and carry through the weekend, with several inches of snow or more possible across the Chicago area.
If you don’t necessarily trust Phil with his predictions, keep in mind that the last day of winter is March 20th so we still have a ways to go!
