Thank you. Unfortunately, those of us living in the deep south don't relate very well to Groundhog Day since groundhogs don't live here. We've tried to come up with a southern alternative like "Armadillo Day" but the 'dillos won't cooperate. The basic idea is that you catch an armadillo and turn him loose on the shoulder of the road. If he makes it to the other side of the road... Well, we aren't quite sure what'll happen 'cause we've tried a couple of thousand times and not a one's made it across the road yet.

Believe it or don't, as a Music Educator, I used to sing a song for the little ones on this prodigious holiday.

Groundhog, Groundhog, Come on out & play;
It's a beautiful, beautiful, February day;
Oh the sun is shining and the sky is blue;
So won't you come on out?
I want to play with you.

There is a ceremonial groundhog somewhere hereabouts, maybe in Georgia or Alabama, I'm not sure. Anyway, I heard about it on the radio today, and for the first time in my life (that I can remember), they said that the groundhog did not see his shadow today, and we will have an early spring. Sounds good to me.

Exactly how far does that weather prediction spread for? I do believe there is one groundhog that predicts for the entire US, but does that include Canada? What about Europe? Or places where it isn't even winter yet, like Australia, will they have an early spring next spring?

Down the road here from us,in Lexinton,N.C.,(which is known as the Barbecue Capitol of N.C.)they are now using a little pot belly pig,to forcast the weather for the next 6 weeks!
after all,what could be more GROUND HOG,than BARBECUE!!!!!
this the first year of the event and hundreds of folks showed up to be a part of the now,Annual event!
no,they didn't kill the little pot belly pig to commemorate the event,but Lexington Barbecue was served to those in attendance and it's the best that you can find,anywhere!!!!

Jimmy the Groundhog, a resident of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, agrees with Wiarton Willie. It will be an early spring. Notwithstanding the town's name, Jimmy saw no shadow and frolicked for a time before ambling back to the burrow.


So, take that, Phil, . . . . . and (as Bill Murray says) don't drive angry.

groundhogs are found over east central Alaska and across southern Canada to the Pacific coastal provinces, extending south to northern Idaho. They are also distributed in the eastern United States (south to central Alabama and Arkansas)and westward to the edge of the plains

They're really cute if you don't have a garden. My next door neighbor did have a garden. I had several ground hogs all over the place, and once they crossed into his property and started eating his veggie blossoms, he did too. The difference was the ones in my back yard were scattered population-wise, and his were scattered on a more individual basis. (He has a gun.) I don't know if there were any that made it out of Summer alive, but if so, they were the ones smart enough to avoid the neighbor's garden.

Well...,
Worms make the soil nice and rich
Butterflies in China make it rain
But some creatures have no redeeming features,
They're the weakest links in the food chain.

And then, there's the 'Independence Day' parody I posted a few years ago, but folks probably saw (and carefully stepped around) that.

Obviously it's a different season here at the moment, but at the equivalent time for us, which would be at the beginning of August, we don't have anything like that either.

Think I'll go and whack some cockroaches. We have plenty of those...

Yeah, well, the trouble with that is that they are very seldom seen anyway. Unless you lived in or near the bush you wouldn't see them at any time, except in the zoo. I've only ever seen one - it wandered into my aunt's garden by mistake. She had trees and bushland behind her property.

We don't have really well-defined seasons here in the temperate zone. In Sydney, winter is somewhat cooler, and a lot of the days are quite pleasant. You people who have snow, ice and blizzards wouldn't really call it winter at all. Up in the mountains it is a different matter. Occasionally there is snow in the Blue Mountains, but only rarely. We have the Snowy Mountains, where the ski resorts are, but the majority of us are either on the coast, in one of our major cities, or further inland, where it is likely to be hotter.

There really isn't any animal that I can think of that appears at the beginning of spring here, unless you count the houseflies. If we get an unseasonally warm day in winter, some of them will hatch out, then when it cools down again, they can be seen walking around, all sluggish from the cold.

Somehow, I can't warm to the idea of HOUSEFLY DAY!

Here I am somewhat late from Punxatawney Phil's home state. Punxantawney Phil is the official grondhog. All others are imposters. He did indeed see his shadow, on 02/02. But I see little sprouts coming up from where I planted tulips last fall.
It was also the birthday of my friends' Tim and Sarah's son, Alexander. He was born 02/02/02. Fortunately he doesn't look like a whistlepig. By the way, groundhogs whistle.
