Happy Groundhog’s Day!!!
Phil says 6 more weeks of winter.
I have been a big fan of this holiday for some time. I just love the idea that we pull a large rodent out of a hole, see if he casts a shadow, and then decide what is going to happen with the weather for the next month. Could we come up with anything more arbitrary? I have to get to Punxsutawney one of these years to see the event for myself.
This article from MSNBC has the lowdown on this year’s festivities with a little history sprinkled in.
I have been trying to get to groundhog.org (the official site of Punxsutawney Phil) all morning, but the site seems to be down. This is the wrong morning to have trouble with the website.
