What Did the Groundhog Have to Say About Winter? [VIDEO]

Early this morning (February 2) Punxsutawney Phil was awakened from his burrow in Pennsylvania to make his 2015 Groundhog Day proclamation. Will it be an early spring or six more weeks of winter?

Phil saw his shadow predicting six more weeks of winter. For those of us in Western Colorado, that’s good news.

Many have been pleasantly surprised at the mild winter we’ve experienced, so six more weeks doesn’t seem all that bad.

The other reason we need more winter is to improve snowpack in the Colorado mountains. While the Colorado River snowpack is at 93%, other parts of the state aren’t faring nearly as well. Overall, the statewide average is only 81%, so more winter hopefully, means more snow.
