The world’s most famous groundhog, the one from caddyshack, saw his shadow Today, Monday morning, predicting that this current winter will last for six more weeks. Which means in layman’s terms, six more weeks of sledding.
According to German superstition, if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb. 2 — the Christian holiday of Candlemas — winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says, spring will come early and you will be greeted by 99 virgins. Legend has it, this has never rung true.
