Happy Ground Hog Day!


On February 2, Phil comes out of his burrow on Gobbler's Knob - in front of thousands of followers from all over the world - to predict the weather for the rest of winter.

According to legend, if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

Punxsutawney Phil is the only true weather forecasting groundhog. The others are just impostors.

Here is the consensus from the blogosphere:

Dana is stepping on his nuts to prevent him from seeing his shadow.

Jenni has threatened the poor dear with Twitter!

Sandy posted a video. I'll have to go back and look, I want the boys to sleep as long as possible.

More from Sandy.

Laurie at Tip Junkie has lots of great ideas for the kids!

Mary from Canada chimes in!

and how cool is this!!!

The Murray Quads turn TWO today. Born on Ground Hog Day! That is so awesome.

Happy Second Birthday Isaac, Brooks, Clark, and Henry!!!!

You guys are way cuter than Phil!

I like how you collect what others have to say as your post. I thought if he saw his shadow that it was 42 more days of winter (which is the same thing as 6 weeks… go figure).
