Trivia: I'm not sure if this was done intentionally, but in the scene where Phil is eating a table full of sweets, talking to Rita, as the camera pans in on Phil, there are 2 clocks on his immediate left. Both look like they indicate the same time, but one says 5:55, and one says 11:30. Notice that the angle of each hand is the same, but the little and big hands are switched. Neat trick if it was done on purpose.
Question: Phil is unable to leave Punxsutawney after his broadcast because of the blizzard. Has there ever been any explanation as to why he doesn't try to leave Punxsutawney as soon as he wakes up? I'm sure the time loop would have still been in effect, but unless I'm mistaken, the movie never addresses whether or not Phil ever tried to leave town before the roads were closed.
