Winter 2012 will have an extended stay on America's calendar[日历], according to today's annual Groundhog[土拨鼠] Day forecasting event in Punxsutawney[旁苏托尼], Pennsylvania[宾夕法尼亚].

Each year on February 2nd, people from around the world, including 5,000 in the small town today, watch this tongue-twisting[拗口的] small town for a sign from one groundhog that supposedly predicts when that year's spring will arrive:

If it's a cloudy day outside when the groundhog emerges from[自…出现] its burrow[洞穴] , then spring will arrive early that year. However, if it is sunny outside, the groundhog will supposedly be scared by its own shadow, retreating[撤退] underground for six more weeks of cold weather.
