PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. The world's most famous groundhog saw his shadow Monday (2/2) morning, predicting winter will last for six more weeks.

Besides being Groundhog Day in the US, this is National Groundhog Job Shadow Day. Founded in 1996, many nonprofit groups work together to provide half a million young people with the opportunity to shadow someone on the job, to learn more about the job of someone they know. Celebrate by teaching someone something new today!

BTW, February 2nd is a "cross-quarter" day in the solar calendar, which means that it falls exactly between a solstice and an equinox.
