Snowing today, so I guess he would not see his shodow.

P.S. Groundhog day is not a "holiday" here in Canada, it is just a "Day of Interest" because everyone wants to know if the silly animal will see his shadow. By this time of winter we are so sick of snow and cold, we all want it to be over...... and quickly! lol

I grew up in New York, where the "Ground Hog" was better known as a woodchuck... and if he sticks his head up, it's usually shot off!

But here in Pennsylvania, it was pretty cloudy today...

He'd run back inside if he lived in my backyard.....at least today. The results would have been different yesterday. Hmmmm.

GCHUNG-Too Funny! My hubby would do the same thing!

Sunny here in WI...we can not count on winter leaving us until mid April. It seems we always get at least one good heavy wet snow storm in April to let us know Mother Nature does not go by the calendar. emoticon emoticon emoticon

He would be captured by my DH - like his other relatives and sent to visit relatives in another part of the state.

It's clear out now so he would see his shadow.
I think they said he didn't. I don't know how they can tell when they pull him out before daylight and there are so many lights and cameras I don't think the poor dear can see anything but spots in front of his eyes.

I believe he will see his shadow unless he hurries out and then back in. It looks like we're going to have sunshine for at least a while today.

Slowly and surely wins the race.

Groundhog Day is a holiday celebrated on February 2 in the United States and Canada. According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, it will leave the burrow, signifying that winter-like weather will soon end. If it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks. [Wikipedia]

If the groundhog lived in your backyard, would he see his shadow & go back in his burrow? Or would he stay out & put an end to winter?
