After growing up watching this ground hog emerge and supposedly decide how many weeks of winter are remaining, something just ocurred to me...how do we know if this rodent sees his shadow or not? Does he give the thumbs up actually talk to the media and let them know? I mean really, if there were thousands of people waiting for you to emerge from your burrow, lights, cameras and noise...it seems any rodent with an ounce of self-preservation instinct would go back in the hole. Just wondering if this tradition seems ridiculus to anyone else? Does anyone really believe this nonsense? If so, please explain.

100% believer. If you can't believe Phil the groundhog, who can you believe? Besides, his forecast is as accurate as Mark and Rob at WJHL.

Each year they use a new rodent that has been sent to live with the kardashians for 12 months. When his time is up with them he is a media hog that will do anything to be on camera. Last years Phil already has a sex tape out with him and Paris Hilton. It's called Burrowing In Paris. He also tweets out his forecast to his followers ahead of time so we know it is legit.

Just so they don't use a rodent that has been burrowing in Chief Meteorologist Mark.
