Morning Poll: Six More Weeks of Winter?

Groundhog Day (photo via Facebook)Sunday morning, outside of a small Pennsylvania town about 4 hours northwest of Arlington, the famed weather-predicting groundhog Punxsutawney Phil made a not-so-bold prediction.

As three winter storms prepared to batter the northeast this week, Phil saw his shadow and thus predicted six more weeks of winter. (The immediate D.C. metro area has so far been spared snow from today’s storm.)

While not a huge snow producer, this winter has without a doubt been one of our coldest in recent memory. With that in mind, how do you feel about the groundhog’s forecast?
