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!
