This Friday, February 2nd, is Groundhog's Day! Are we going to have 6 more weeks of winter or will the next 6 weeks be more spring-like weather?
The tradition is based in Pennsylvania and involves Punxsutawney Phil, a local groundhog. The following diary entry was posted on February 4th, 1841, of Berks County, Pennsylvania:
"Last Tuesday, the 2nd, was Candlemas day, the day on which, according to the Germans, the groundhog peeps out of his winter quarters and if he sees his shadow he pops back for another six weeks nap, but if the day be cloudy he remains out, as the weather is to be moderate."
So, Bob is wondering if he will be wearing his baseball cap or his winter hat the next 6 weeks. Place your vote in the comments:
Thumbs Up = Phil did not see shadow-- 6 weeks milder weather
Angry face = Phil saw shadow-- 6 weeks of winter weather
