    Call me weird, but Groundhog Day is one of my favorite holidays (probably because it's weird!). One of my more random goals in life is to visit Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, for their annual holiday festival, just because I think it would be really cool to be there when the famous Phil makes his prediction.

    If you're from outside the United States or just don't know what Groundhog Day is, click here.

    Tomorrow I'll post Phil's prediction so we can all see if we're doomed to suffer through six more weeks of winter... [​IMG]

    What do you think the prediction will be? More winter, or an early spring?

    We watch the movie EVERY YEAR on Feb. 2nd. Bill Murray cracks me up.

    Only one day left!

    Ah, Ground Hog Carols, the anticipation of the children, the smell of Ground Hog roasting on an open fire.... opening presents, digging up groundhog holes, it's a regular Festivus I tell you!

    We're buried under a million feet of snow right now. Not much hope even for a late spring here at the moment.
    [​IMG] it's getting ridiculous.

    We finally got power back last night and the ice is melting a little today. If you are going to go to PA anyway can you get a good spot up front and plug up the hole when Phil comes out. That way rain or shine the fix is in ..."Spring is on the way" (I hope).
