Just after 6:25 a.m. Punxsutawney Phil was pulled from is warm burrow in Pennsylvania and General Lee emerged from his plantation home to predict if we are to experience six more weeks of winter or if we'll see an early spring.
In the comedy classic Groundhog Day, Bill Murray’s curmudgeonly newscaster Phil Connors starts to lose his mind after repeatedly living the exact same February 2 over and over again. For the low price of ten pounds (approximately $14 in real money), patrons of Liverpool’s Small Cinema can now live Phil’s Groundhog Day experience for real — but not the part where he seduces beautiful women, or becomes a better person, or is Bill Murray. Really just the repetition and its accompanying descent into madness.
It's pretty comical that we turn to a rodent to predict our weather! At 7:25 a.m. today, Punxsutawney Phil was pulled out of the comfort of his warm burrow to tell us if spring was going to arrive early or if winter would be sticking around a little longer.
