As the weary media circus in Iowa packs up its bags and makes its way to New Hampshire, many members of the press and the public are also gathering at Gobbler’s Knob in the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.

They wait with bated breath, for a weather forecast from a legendary meteorologist marmot, better known as Punxsutawney Phil, the Groundhog.

In honor of the holiday, Sky will be airing the popular 1993 film ‘Groundhog Day’ starring Bill Murray…all day.

The Twitter-sphere have expressed their elation.
