Happy Ground Hog's Day! Tradition says that if Punxatawney Phil sees his shadow on this date, there will be six more weeks of winter. Let's see...February 2nd. Add six weeks and that puts us at mid March. Right around the time of Spring Equinox.
So if Phil sees his shadow, we will have six more weeks of winter. And if he doesn't? We have about six more weeks of winter--maybe seven. At this point, I'll take six instead of seven. Bring on the sun!
