Punky Pete, the short version of Punxsutawney Pete the weather-predicting Groundhog, did NOT see his shadow today. Clouds blocked the sunlight in his area of western Pennsylvania. According to the legend, this means that it will be an early spring. The fans partied on regardless. Here you see the existentially challenged rodent pointing at...NOTHING. What is the shadow of a shadow? How do you point at nothing? Does nothing have a shadow? I think some sips of whiskey may be necessary before considering these questions. Congratulations Pete! Spring is coming soon!
