2. Who is Phil's competition?
If Phil's not your go-to groundhog Thursday, you have plenty of other options because Punxsutawneyâ€™s not the only city with a dog (or groundhog) in this fight.
Over the years, other prognosticating groundhogs have popped up, primarily throughout the eastern half of North America to claim a piece of the dayâ€™s weather-predicting pie. Among them include:
â€¢ General Beauregard Lee in Lilburn, Ga.
â€¢ Wiarton Willie, an albino Canadian groundhog in Bruce County, Ontario
â€¢ Sir Walter Wally in Raleigh, N.C.
â€¢ Holland Huckleberry in Holland, Ohio
â€¢ Chuck Wood in Stickney, Ill.
