Groundhog Day -- Watch the prediction live!

Groundhog Day festivities have begun and people have gathered to wait for Punxsutawny Phil to emerge from his hole and make a prediction about how much longer winter will last. And what a wild bunch they are! Last I checked in, they were grooving to the B-52s.

According to tradition and folklore, if Phil sees his shadow, there will be 6 more weeks of winter; if not, spring is on its way.

Couldn't get to Gobbler's Knob, Pa.? Watch the action live here.
