And Punxsutawney Phil delivered good news on Groundhog Day morning, failing to see his shadow and thus predicting an early spring is on its way, according to local lore.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio stopped attending Staten Island's Groundhog Day ceremony in 2015, a year after he accidentally dropped the furry critter that died a week later.
Punxsutawney Phil is quite the celebrity on February 2, but during the rest of the year, he fulfills his job as being an attraction for locals. According to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, the iconic creature's predictions are only 39 percent accurate.
But there's more to Phil than meets the eye.
