    Official groundhog handler Bill Deeley (in file photo) holds Punxsutawney Phil as he talks to the local media Feb. 2 in Punxsutawney, Penn. As is traditional on Groundhog Day, the furry little weather forecaster comes out of his burrow, looks for his shadow and utters his prediction on how much longer winter will last in "groundhogese." This year, Phil predicted six more weeks of winter. Punxsutawney has celebrated Groundhog Day since 1887, as depicted in the 1993 movie "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray.
