Groundhog Rivalry

Today is Groundhog Day - and you can catch the latest weather reports from Phil the Groundhog from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania here - will he predict an early spring? However, Phil is not the only hog-based forecaster - he has a rival, Chuck, in Staten Island, New York who counts the mayor Michael Bloomberg amongst his afficionados. You can read more about the prickly relationship between the two hogs here.

UPDATE: Sadly Phil has seen his shadow - which means 6 more weeks of winter. Judging by the temperature outside, I think we all saw that one coming.
