Groundhog Day   February 2nd, Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania       our Groundhog photos

Around this time of the year you may often hear th
e topic, “Groundhog Day” while staying in the US .   “Groundhog Day” is on February 2nd every year since 1887.  It’s a day when the famous Punxsutawney Phil, Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, the groundhog forecasts the weather by coming out a hole after his hibernating sleep.  If he sees his shadow, winter will stay for another six weeks and Phil will go back in his hole to make more Z’s.  If it doesn’t see his shadow, winter is over and he will stay above the ground.  In fact, it’s not easy to figure out this definition.  However, it is for sure that if it’s not sunny, Phil will not see his shadow since there is no shadow?  Anyway, this is fun, isn’t it?   (posted: 030128, modified: 110304)
