Groundhog Day

Today is Groundhog Day. Will Pinxsutawney Phil see his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter or vice versa? Personally, I am hoping for the latter, although it would be nice to use my recent purchase of yaxtraks this year.

Although I do not completely believe in Phil's prediction as gospel, I think it's fun to play along with this tradition. After all it's been going on for 120 years! Plus, I just think groundhogs are cute. Last April, I literally saw one in my back yard underneath my shed. That was really cool to see. I remember grabbing my camera and trying to take some photos. I got a few shots without him moving, but they were from a distance. Here's my version of Pinxsutawney Phil. It's hard to see, but he's that little guy sitting there.


Well, according to the official Groundhog Day website, Phil has seen his shadow. That means six more weeks of winter. :-(
