Groundhog Day? Oops

I totally had this entire post planned out about Groundhog Day.  Buuuuut, I missed it, by about two days.  But, better late than never, right?  So according to the little guy, we will be looking forward to spring a few weeks early! Here’s a fun article by the Washington Post.

The first prediction occurred in 1887 and Phil has seen his shadow about 100 times, not seen it 16 times, there are 9 years missing, and there is always the question of accuracy.  Hey, if a groundhog can predict our weather patterns and it means spring will come early, then that’s fine by me. 🙂

There is an actual town, Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where they throw a HUGE celebration for famous creature. There is even a phone number that you can call to get the forecast for that February 2nd. Isn’t that cool? Our 8th grade teacher was obsessed with the whole situation and I totally made the phone call, just to participate to the max. Yes, I was that kid.

Are you excited about spring/summer?

  1. YES! I forgot about groundhog day too but the fact that it’s coming early made me a very happy girl! Haha I love that movie. I think it’s awesome. Hallelujah summer is on its wayy!!!!

  2. Haha cute!! I stopped paying attention to the thing after it promised 6 more weeks of winter one year. Now I’m afraid to even tune in. I’m definitely down for warm weather though.. These negative temps are getting old!
