Anyone interested in weather predictions should watch the events tomorrow at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. The annual  Groundhog Day festivities are scheduled to begin at 5:00 am ET.

According to folklore, if Phil sees his shadow when he emerges from his burrow, it means six more weeks of winter; no shadow means spring will come early.

This holiday dates back to February 2, 1887, and is a major celebration. Thousands of people descend upon the small town, located in Jefferson county, about 84 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

As a lifelong resident of PA (until moving to FL last year) we were very familiar with this tradition. I’ve conveniently scheduled my next trip home to visit family after the six weeks mark (just in case.) I’ve gotten used to warm, sunny weather during the winter months!
