A large crowd turned out to see Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog Day Thursday, waiting to learn whether the animal saw his own shadow on Gobbler’s Knob. Phil was in an unusually feisty mood, but once he settled down, he saw his own shadow, officials deemed.

As aficionados of the annual ritual will know, that means we’re in for six more weeks of cold weather, and as the prediction was read out in in Punxsutawney Pa., a sign was held aloft reading, “We love Old Man Winter.”

I hope he’s right, I like the winter.
