Happy Groundhog Day!
Accoding to the office site for Punxsutawney Groundhog Club:
~Punxsutawney Phil is the only true weather forecasting groundhog.
~His prediction is correct 100% of the time, of course!
~On February 2, Phil comes out of his burrow on Gobbler's Knob 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 held its first Groundhog Day in the 1800s.
~Punxsutawney Phil was named after King Phillip.
