The Shadow Knows
Photograph by Jay Dickman

Every February 2, tens of thousands of people converge on Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to celebrate Groundhog Day—and bear witness as Punxsutawney Phil is hoisted out of his burrow to give the world his long-range weather forecast. If he sees his shadow, expect six more weeks of winter; otherwise, spring is just around the corner. "I always say he's 100 percent accurate, but meteorologists tell me we're 80 percent accurate," says Bill Deely, Phil's official handler. "We don't use satellites or computers, so I'd say that's pretty good."
