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
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.

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.
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?
