Who would ever think this little guy here has the power to predict the arrival of spring?

At least, that’s what legend says. Should a groundhog see his shadow on February 2nd, that means six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t, then spring is right around the corner. Calendar aside, Phil saw his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter.

Meanwhile, the lottery groundhog predicted at least six more weeks of lotteries. With February 2, 2022 falling on a Wednesday, that meant the Groundhog Day honors went to Lotto Texas and Powerball. These lotteries were in the business of boosting their jackpots and to do that, they ditched their respective Australia Plays. When all was said and done, the jackpots rose to $8.5 million and $137 million, respectively.
