Groundhog's Day 2024 in Prospect CT

It's Groundhog Day, and as the tradition offers, if the burrowing rodent doesn't see its shadow when it peeks from its burrow, then it's a sign that we are in for an early spring.

It's not likely that the little guy saw his shadow today for 2 reasons.

The power went out in town early morning and was off for 3 hours so his alarm may not have worked.

It's overcast and raining which is a better reason.

Regardless, I welcome an early chase to the cold weather and will be appreciative of warm days when we return from the south.

I hope Bill Muray has the same results we experienced and will face a new day tomorrow so he can watch the team his son coaches win another basketball game, unless he's enjoying the Pro-Am at Pebble Beach.

Hello Ed,  being from Pennsylvania in my early years, I have seen that silly Ground Hog and not sure how often he is right.

We have a cloudy, windy and chilly day in Maryland. I have not seen any groundhog reports from our area.

Ed less see if the little rodent is correct about an early Spring, but I will only believe it when I see it.

It seems that there are only two seasons in my neck of the woods, Spring and Summer, haha.

The palm trees in St. George saw their shadow, so it's 6 more weeks of awesomeness, Ed!
