Today, 2 Feb, in 1887, Groundhog Day, featuring a rodent meteorologist, is celebrated for the first time at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. According to tradition, if a groundhog comes out of its hole on this day and sees its shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather; no shadow means an early spring. By the way, Punxsutawne Phil only services those of us north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Beauregard Lee services the southren part of the nation. This is important military information because climate affects combat.
