Groundhog Day on February 2 is when we ask are we in for six
more weeks of Winter?  Only a groundhog named Punxsutawney
Phil knows for sure. Each year on Groundhog Day, people flock
to Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to await the
forecast of the local rodent celebrity. Originating with German
settlers, who came to Pennsylvania in the 1700s and brought
their seasonal superstitions with them, legend has it that if Phil
sees his shadow on February 2, the winter chill will continue.

Oddly, if the weather is cloudy and he doesn’t see his shadow,
we can expect warmer temperatures and early spring. Groundhog
Day is a tradition to be cherished. And yes, it is also a 1993 film
starring Bill Murray (below).
