Oh well..... take what we get.
Groundhog hibernation gave rise to the
popular American custom of Groundhog Day,
held on the second of February every
year. Tradition dictates that if
a groundhog sees
its shadow that day, there will be
six more weeks of winter,
though such a prediction seems
a sure bet over much of the groundhog's
North American range.
