This is the place where thousands gather around early in the morning of February 2. Tour busses start to pick up those who want to be there for the yearly historical event from 3 a.m. on and generally thousands witness the waking up of Phil and his weather predictions.
All over the town of Punxsutawney there are statues in honor of Phil. He resides the rest of the year in a public library where people can view him through a window. However there was no Phil when we visited him. Has he been kidnapped?
