Being a Pennsylvania native, I am all too familar with the buzz on groundhog day. Many Pennsylvanians crossing their fingers hoping Punxsutawney Phil doesn't see his shadow. With the mounds of snow the Pennsylvanians are buried in every winter, its no wander they hold onto the hope that Punxsutawney Phil won't see his shadow. But, it seems he always sees his shadow and there's six more weeks of winter. How did Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow on a cloudy day? Maybe the crowd of people and the man dressed in the traditional German clothing scared Punsutawney Phil and he ran back in his hole. I think if I was a groundhog, I would be a little intimidated too. So, dont get your hopes up people, there is six more weeks of winter.
