Gen. Beau Lee Says It's Going to be a Long Winter

Gen. Beau Lee, "Georgia's Own Weather Prognosticator," sees his shadow: get ready for six more weeks of winter.

Punxsutawney Phil in Pennsylvania may have more notoriety in the groundhog-prediction game, but Gen. Beau Lee rules the business in these parts. He's been doing it for more than three decades.

Stephanie Reeves, spokesperson for the Yellow River Game Ranch, reported a record crowd for this year's gathering. Well over 400 people gathered in the mid-20 degree weather, compared to an average of 150. 

After exploring around for a little bit, the infamous groundhog saw his shadow at 7.28 a.m. 

The crowd was visibly disappointed to hear about the extended winter. One visitor said she hoped it would be a "nice winter," with a little bit of snow.
