Happy Groundhog Day!

Punxsutawney PhilWell it is Groundhog Day and Phil saw his shadow, so winter will be with us for another 6 weeks!  I must say this winter has been a colder one, but so far we have been spared from a really shut down Nor'easter storm here in SE Pennsylvania.


Groundhog Day always reminds me of 2 things: the time we visited Punxsutawney PA and the movie "Groundhog Day".


Our visit to Punxsutawney PA a few years back, happened in the spring so we did not have to deal with snow. We were visiting a relative not too far away so we thought we'd check out the town where Punxsutawney Phil resides.  We discovered Phil lives near the library and the downtown park. 

We were surprised to find out from locals that the spot where Phil sees his shadow is on the outskirts of town at Goblers Knobb of which we did visit. 

We were also surprised to find out that the movie "Groundhog Day" was not filmed at all in Punxsutawney PA!  Too bad for the town folk.  

Anyway, I never tire of seeing the movie, guess I'm sort of caught in a loop!!

Happy Groundhog Day!

I think I have seen the movie almost as much as the days Phil Connors had to repeat.

Love this post as well as the movie:)) on a side note do you remember when that politician in NY tried to create competition to  Phil and they had a different result... the knucklehead dropped the competition to Phil and sadly that one died within 48 hrs of it...Endre

Somehow I missed this post when you first posted it, Gloria.  I suspect Phil does a better job forecasting spring in your neck of the woods.  We have had several days of temps in the 70s, with sunshine.

Gloria, I remember the movie. While I know some folks love winter, I'm not a big fan. I'm looking forward to spring. I hope you have a great winter!
