Every February 2 there is a party in Punxsutawney, PA  for Ground Hog Day!  This Saturday will be no different.   This is one of those events I don't want to go to...ever!  I think I would be so disappointed and it always looks so cold. But here is the deal...

Punxsutawney Phil will for the 133 time come out of his stump on Gobbler's Knob  prognostication on Saturday!

From The Legend page Groundhog.org"

"If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Come, Winter, have another flight;
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Go Winter, and come not again."


It all seem to come from this English folk song.  The Germans added the animal aspect. Now we have Phil.

So...sun is bad (more winter)...clouds are good (early spring).  Got it Phil.

Phil is the original ground hog from 1887! They CLAIM Punxsutawney Phil gets his longevity from drinking "groundhog punch", it's a secret recipe.  ALLRIGHTY THEN,I want some of that!

Hey, we are in Maine, it is a sure bet that we will see six more weeks of bad weather no matter what!

Phil all hooked up, he has an Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and of course a web page Groundhog.org.  How does Phil do all of that with out thumbs?


They will have a live feed Saturday morning.  You will be able to find it here!

Here is a stupid fact about me...I have never seen the movie Ground Hog Day.
