One of my favorite holidays of the year. Groundhog Day. So random, so silly, and so amazing.
You know the drill by now. Every year in Punxsutawney, PA on the morning of February 2nd a bunch of crazy old men in top hats talk in “Groundhogese” to a groundhog named Phil to determine if we are in for 6 more weeks of winter or an early spring. If he sees his shadow, more winter. Doesn’t see the shadow, more spring.
This year we got conflicting reports between Punxsutawney Phil and our local Connecticut groundhog Chuckles. Phil saw his shadow which means 6 more weeks of winter. Chuckles on the other hand DIDN’T see his shadow which means an early spring! I’m going with Chuckles. Bring on the sunshine and warm weather.
