Sun Prairie, Wis. - Groundhog Day brought out dozens of people in Sun Prairie Sunday morning, many hoping to hear a brutal Wisconsin winter will be cut short.
"It's been so cold, I can do the snow, I can handle that. But the below zero? I don't now if I can handle more," said Morgan Beaden.
Beaden and others were up before the sun to get a glimpse of Sun Prairie's groundhog Jimmy. Most of them were hoping he wouldn't get a glimpse of his own shadow.
Sun Prairie Mayor, John Murray helped interpret what Jimmy was saying.
"Six more weeks of winter!" Murray said to the crowd.
"Well I think like anybody who's been through this absolutely rough winter, I was hoping for an early spring. But unfortunately that wasn't the prediction and Jimmy is never wrong," Murray said off the stage.
"I'm a little bummed. I don't know if I can handle it," Beaden said.
