Happy Ground Hog Day 2017

Today we are hoping for early morning clouds in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.   This is the day we learn when spring will arrive.   According to an old Pennsylvania German tradition, from the 18 and 19 centuries, a ground hog will predict spring’s arrival.   If the ground hog, Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, early this morning when he emerges from his burrow, we will have 6 more weeks of winter.

Happy Ground Day.

Happy Ground Day.

However, if Punxsutawney Phil does not see his shadow this morning, we should an early spring.   We are hoping for clouds in Pennsylvania this morning.
