Sadly, as you can see in Phil's selfie, he did in fact see his shadow... :(
The real question we have to ask ourselves, is how we decided, way back when, to let a large nonverbal rodent who probably in all likelihood detests being dragged out of his nice warm burrow and forced to make a prediction for a society he isn't part of... well, you get the picture, right?
How do we know he has our best interests are heart? Hmmm? I mean, he's all snuggly back in his lavish burrow (by groundhog standards anyway) and laughing to himself.... "Humans, so gullible..."
Just food for thought..... ;)
