Today is Groundhog Day, which means that America’s favorite marmot, Punxsutawney Phil, will either emerge from his burrow to cloudy skies – and announce the arrival of an early spring! – or to sunshine – causing Phil to retreat back into his burrow in fear of his shadow, suggesting we’ll have to endure six more weeks of winter.
