Groundhog day

Legend has it that groundhogs come out of hibernation on February 2nd to test the weather….

It’s the 130th year of Groundhog Day at Gobbler’s Knob, today.

This is the main event where Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Seers, the Prognosticator of Prognosticators, the worlds most famous groundhog and the only real weather predicting groundhog will greet his true believers and will reveal to the President of the Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club his prediction for the end of winter.

According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks.

  1. Hi,
    I saw and loved the movie Ground Hog Day. Congratulations on being Danny Ray’s featured blogger. I was his featured blogger too. I am having a Valentines blog party on my site today. I’d love to have you come.
