Happy Groundhog's day!

So, six more weeks of winter.

My question, has the groundhog ever MISSED seeing his shadow? Doesn't Spring usually come in mid-March?

UPDATE: Slate published an article about seeing shadows, etc. And it turns out the rodent sees his shadow 90% of the time.

UPDATE 2: Boston Globe on the usefulness of the rodent in New England.

This whole tradition reeks of conspiracy as far as I'm concerned....of course, living in LA, I'm not sure it makes all that much difference. :)
