Groundhog Day Festivities Will Go On Despite Weather and COVID-19
Neither snow nor rain nor heat, not even a pandemic will stop Punxsutawney Phil from seeing his shadow today. The show must go on for the 135th Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania but it'll happen virtually.
Phil has been keeping himself busy during this pandemic, he's also been available virtually. If you've been looking for the perfect groundhog day present, you can get a personal message from him. It actually comes from the handler but he will translate the "Groundhogese" into English for you.
It would have been interesting this year with the near foot of snow in the area but it's still unfortunate that people won't be gathering at Gobbler's Knob to see if the Prognosticators of Prognosticators will see his shadow this morning.
You may not be able to go to Punxsutawney this year but Punxsutawney can come to you. Beginning at 6:30 this morning, you can go here and listen to music and learn how to make Wigle Whiskey cocktails and more.
After the 40 plus inches of snow that we saw in mid-December and the current Nor'easter, we would love it if the Seer of Seers doesn't see his shadow around 7:25 a.m. today.
Remember if Phil sees his shadow, it's six more weeks of winter and spring will come early if he doesn't. I know, you would think it's the other way around. That's actually how I remember it...It's the opposite of what you would think. Kind of like how some of the things of 2020 and 2021 have been.
