It's a tradition that has happened each year on February 2 since 1887. 

How in the world someone decided that a Ground Hog seeing, or in today's case, not seeing his shadow can predict whether or not Spring would arrive early is beyond me.  But, it happens.  I should do a test to see how many years dear ole Phil is correct.  At any rate, looks like the 70's that we have been seeing here in Southwest Oklahoma will continue.

Watch this mornings proclamation.  It's fun stuff.
