POLL: Which groundhogs are correct 2017?

It was the 131st time Punxsutawney Phil has shared his meteorological ideas. Despite more than an hour of loud music and the adoring shouts of human admirers, his handlers had to grapple with the groundhog so he could have his moment in the sun (or shade). It was around 30 degrees. To awaken the groundhog, the crowd chanted "Phil! Phil! Phil! Phil!" The door on his tree-trunk lair was unlocked. On the count of three, his handlers (wearing protective gloves) brought Phil out.

"He's squealin', he's hollerin'!" the emcee said, before concluding, "Phil is feisty!" The animal, known in his hometown as "the seer of seers," was then displayed to the crowd before being placed on a stump to determine whether he might see his own shadow. An official decree was then read aloud, declaring our cold future.

In olden times, the Gobbler's Knob celebration included eating the star rodent, but as Phil rose in popularity, he moved off the menu. The cost of hotel rooms in Punxsutawney for this event is higher than rooms at the Super Bowl.

Groundhog Day (1993) starring Bill Murray is on cable TV's AMC channel today at 9:00 am, 11:30 am, 2:00 pm, 4:30 pm, 7:00 pm, 9:30 pm, midnight, and 2:30 am.
