Groundhog Day 2013
Will springtime come beginning this year?

According to tradition, the response depends on a groundhog and the right varying climate circumstances on Feb. 2.

If a groundhog comes out from its drill down and see its darkness, then six more several weeks of cold climate is on the way.

But if it comes out and recognizes no darkness, springtime is prediction to come beginning.

Punxsutawney, the California city that is house to one of the most popular weather-predicting groundhogs, Punxsutawney Phil, has been holding on the custom of Groundhog Day since the Nineteenth century, according to The Punxsutawney Groundhog Team.

Ever since the custom started in 1887, Phil (and his ancestors) saw their dark areas 99 periods, while forecasting an may only 16 periods. There was no history for nine of the decades.

Thousands are required to collect at Gobbler's Handle to look at Phil appear from his residing.

However, Punxsutawney Phil isn't the only groundhog that's predicted to create an overall look.

New York has "Staten Island Chuck," Atlanta has "General Beauregard Lee" and "Wiarton Willie" is in Wiarton, Ontario, according to the National Climactic Data Center .

But Punxsutawney residents aren't worried about Phil's competition.

"We welcome them all. We like the competition," Bill Deeley, president of the Groundhog Club's Inner Circle told The Associated Press.
