Tonight’s Topic: Do you believe in the Groundhog day legend?

Punxsutawney Phil of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania saw his shadow today which means 6 more weeks of Winter. Now since it was completly overcast there, I want to know how did he see his shadow?
 Here in Charlotte, we have our own groundhog, Queen Charlotte. And she did not see her shadow so it should be an early spring. Guess we will have to see who is more accurate.
  Here are all the other groundhogs and there predication for this year:
