Groundhog Day

Today, February 2nd, is Groundhog Day! Groundhog Day is popular in North America (United Sates and Canada), where the prediction of seasonal weather is dependent upon a groundhog and his shadow.

As the tradition goes, on February 2nd if a groundhog emerges from its burrowed home and sees his shadow, he’ll retreat and there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, it is believed that spring will arrive early.

Here in Pennsylvania, Phil saw his shadow. So, we’ll have six more weeks of winter. Yay.
