Happy Groundhog Day!!

02 Feb


Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”



Today, February 2nd is Groundhog Day.    According to folklore, there are two options that could happen today:

  • If it’s cloudy when the groundhog emerges and he doesn’t see his shadow, then spring will be right around the corner; but
  • If it’s sunny when the groundhog emerges, he does *see* his shadow and retreats back into his burrow, then winter will continue for six more weeks.

The largest groundhog day celebration takes place every year in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. 

Personally, I hope that spring is right around the corner.  I could go for some warmer weather here at the Hotel Thompson.  And I know that oinker Bacon would enjoy it.

Good luck on whatever you want.   I’ll be back soon!

      I so agree. It’s way to cold lately. Today though for Groundhog Day, it’s been in the 60″s. Can you believe that? XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. It’s a real day. Our groundhog says that spring will be around the corner. I so can’t wait. I’m ready for it. Of course, wouldn’t you believe it that today’s temp has been in the 60’s? It’s been great today XOXO – Bacon

        Snorts. I hope you get some relief soon. Talking about moles – PLOL. Mom and dad were having a discussion earlier about treehouses vs hobbit holes. Which would you prefer? XOXO – Bacon

        YES! I think we could all easily live in them. It would be a hoot. Some people think it’s funny that I live ‘inside’ and have my own room with luxuries. What would they think if I lived ‘under ground’? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Good report. Later, mom will take me out to see if I see my shadow. I’ll try not to be scared of it. I hope it doesn’t try to kill me…..

    Love and licks,

      Oh no my friend. Your shadow would not dare. It’s there to protect you for sure. I *need* spring soon. XOXO – Bacon

    We so agree – we are tired of the cold….mind you come summer we will all be complaining it is too hot

    • PigLove

      02/02/2014 at 6:07 pm

      Oh yes. We need a perfect season – not too cold and not hot. Something like spring or fall. Can’t we just skip the bad seasons? XOXO – Bacon

    What an interesting custom and we love the movie too! 🙂

      It’s all in fun – just like the movie – snorts. I really don’t have that much faith in it. It was beautiful here yesterday – we topped out at 74 degrees. Awesome day knowing that just a couple of days before we had conspiracy snow and were in the 20’s. This week it’s rain. Shakes piggy head. Hopefully spring is right around the corner. I need it bad. XOXO – Bacon
