108   “Groundhog Day”   February 2, 2004  

Pix of a groundhog!!!:  We shot pix of a groundhog (woodchuck) on the North Shore near Duluth in the summer of 2003.  One of our friends is saying that there are many groundhogs (woodchucks) in Minnesota.  BTW, groundhogs are also called woodchucks.  Check out our new groundhog pictures here!
 
“Groundhog Day” is on February 2nd every year since 1887.   For more details on “Groundhog Day” , see our letters 23 and 38.

The famous Punxsutawney Phil, Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, doesn’t see his shadow, winter is over and he will stay above the ground…  Most of us living in Minnesota hope that Phil won’t see his shadow on this coming Mon.  Here is so damn cold; these days it’s always below -10 C; sometimes the temperatures go down to -30 C especially when the windchill factor is considered.

We’re sure that King Boreas is happy for this frigid weather, but we anticipate that the Vulcan and his aids will kick King Boreas out of St. Paul on this Sat. to finish the Winter; see our Letter 107 for more details on Boreas and the Vulcan.
