Groundhog Day: Disney Style!

It's Groundhog Day!

This video cuts off the rest of the scene, but the groundhog does end up emerging, eyes shut with his paws covering them.  As he mutters about not wanting to see his shadow, the sun suddenly is covered up by clouds overhead.  When he takes his paws off his eyes, the shadow's gone!  "Spring is on it's way!"

Well, how about in the real world?  We want to know about how much more winter's left too!

Apparently the verdict for today is...well, depends on the groundhog!  Chuck of Staten Island was like our animated friend above: he luckily didn't see his shadow.  However, Punxsutawney Phil, another famed groundhog, did see his shadow, giving us the downcast prediction of six more weeks of winter.  Whom do you agree with?

"How about me?"
Gopher wants to try his, paw at Groundhog Day!

Sorry, but you're a gopher.  This is Groundhog Day.

"I'm not in the book, you know!"

Not going to work.  Sorry, Gopher.

  1. I asked in this post whom you agree with. Well, here's the results from the poll I put at the bottom of the blog homepage!
    Poor Chuck got 0 votes.
    Phil got 1 vote.
    While Gopher got 2 votes.
    Seems like next year we should be expecting a certain gopher to give predictions for Groundhog Day!
