Six More Weeks of Winter

Happy Ground Hog Day

Last year we visited Wilma, the Hutchinson (Kansas) Zoo's groundhog (above), for the scoop on groundhog day.

This year, we're on the road but we did check to see if Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow at Gobbler's Knob, Pennsylvania - and he did - thus predicting six more weeks of winter weather.

We wish you a Happy Groundhog Day, a joyous Brigit's Day or just a pleasant Saturday, whichever one is applicable.

For some of the fascinating cultural history of this day, see our coverage last year.

And I still think prairie dogs deserve their day.
