Did the Groundhog see his shadow on Sunday? Aside from Super Bowl 2014, the big question on Twitter is "Did Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow on Groundhog Day?"

If you believe in the myth and were hoping for an early spring, Phil just dashed your hopes.

The crowd that gathered at Gobblers Knob in Punxsutawney, PA on Sunday morning faced chilly temperatures as they waited to see the little critter emerge from his temporary home.

Sure enough, he emerged from his burrow at approximately 7:25 a.m. to see his shadow, disappointing those who hoped to see an early spring.

Instead, we are to expect six more weeks of winter. Hopefully that goes by fast for those of us who have been chilled to the bone this winter.
