PUNXSUTAWNEY, PA - FEBRUARY 2: Groundhog handler John Griffiths holds Punxsutawney Phil after he saw his shadow predicting six more weeks of winter during 128th annual Groundhog Day festivities on February 2, 2014 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Groundhog Day is a popular tradition in the United States and Canada. A smaller than usual crowd this year of less than 25,000 people spent a night of revelry awaiting the sunrise and the groundhog's exit from his winter den. If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his den. Early spring arrives if he does not see his shadow, causing Phil to remain above ground. (Photo by Jeff Swensen/Getty Images)

February 2nd is a big day. Not only is it the day the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers for the Super Bowl down in Miami, but it’s also Groundhog Day, which is a fun way to look forward to spring in Charlotte.

As the legend goes, if the groundhog sees it’s shadow then winter will continue for another six weeks. If the groundhog does not see his shadow then spring is just around the corner. With the way winter in Charlotte is going this year…both don’t seem like an awful option.

Meet Punxsutawney Phil!
