Looks like Gen. Beauregard Lee has finally found a way to get out from under Punxsutawney Phil’s shadow:

“Georgia groundhog uses Twitter, says spring’s almost here,” reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Among Beau’s tweets: “[L]ots of people yelling outside; must be time.” And, for the record, Beau did not see his shadow; Phil did, as did Ohio’s Buckeye Chuck.

UPDATE: Woodstock Willie of Illinois? Shadow.

UPDATE II: Charles G. Hog of Staten Island, NY saw his shadow…and bit Mayor Bloomberg. The Staten Island Advance has the footage.
