According to wikipedia, Super Tuesday "commonly refers to the Tuesday in early February or March of a presidential election year when the greatest number of states hold primary elections to select delegates to national conventions at which each party's presidential candidates are officially nominated. More delegates can be won on Super Tuesday than on any other single day of the primary calendar, and accordingly, candidates seeking the presidency traditionally must do well on this day to secure their party's nomination."

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today, which means we've got six more weeks of winter. Who's Punxsutawney Phil? Oh, he's the "seer of seers and prognosticator of prognosticators," a groundhog resident of Punxsutawney, Penn.
According to lore, if the groundhog emerges from his burrow on February 2 (Groundhog Day) and sees his shadow, he will be frightened back into his hole, presaging another six weeks of winter. A cloudy day -- and no shadow -- means winter will end early.
