Punxsutawney Phil to text his weather prediction Feb. 2
PITTSBURGH (WKOW) -- Tourism officials in Pennsylvania are hoping to spread the fun of Groundhog's Day across the country using technology.
This year, you can sign up to receive a text alert when the famous Punxsutawney Phil makes his prediction on February 2.
Every year, thousands of people head to Punxsutawney to find out whether Phil sees his shadow and whether we'll have an early spring or six more weeks of winter. But the state's deputy tourism secretary says this is a good way to get the word out, since not everyone can make it to Pennsylvania.
Members of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club will pull Phil from his hiding spot and listen for his prediction and then send a text message.
You can sign up by texting the keyword "Groundhog" to 247365.
