Groundhog Day!

Six more weeks of winter! states, “According to folklore, if it is cloudy when the groundhog emerges from his burrow on this day, then spring will come early, if it is sunny the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks.” Punxsutawney Phil is the famous groundhog. This year, February 2, 2015, Phil saw his shadow. The winter weather will continue but not for California. Californians are praying for winter weather because of the drought and lack of rain in California. For states such as New York, it may be a bit disappointing considering the blizzard and snow. Happy late Groundhog Day! Let’s pray for some rain here in California!
