Seattle's Best Warms Up Fans on Groundhog Day

Each year on February 2, Americans across the country watch as the nation’s most famous groundhog predicts the fate of winter weather in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Chances are, the groundhog will emerge from his burrow and see his shadow, signaling six more weeks of winter.
