PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pennsylvania (WXOW) - You can thank the infamous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, for that prediction.
He did not see his shadow at Gobbler's Knob in Pennsylvania this Groundhog's Day, which means spring is coming early according to the old tradition.
It probably didn't feel like it though for the estimated 40,000 people standing outside in frigid temperatures waiting for Phil's big moment.
Officials in Punxsutawney say it's one of the largest crowds in history.
Some people got there as early as 3 a.m. just to get a good spot.
