Punxsutawney, PA -- Early spring or more winter? All we're left with on this Groundhog Day is confusion.

Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil made his prediction early Saturday. He says we can expect an early spring.

Well, the Natural Science Center's Groundhog, Woody, predicts six more weeks of winter.

With thousands watching on Gobbler's Knob in west-central Pennsylvania, Phil emerged from his lair Saturday but didn't see his shadow.

Legend has it that if the groundhog sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last six more weeks. But if he doesn't see his shadow, spring will come early. At least that's what the Inner Circle says -- the group that dons top hats and tuxedos on Groundhog Day each year to oversee the ceremony.

Later in the day, Woody used his meterological instruments to shoot snow out of his weather center, telling the crowd to expect more winter.

So, who do you believe?
