Happy Groundhog Day!

Punxsutawney PhilWell it is Groundhog Day and Phil saw his shadow, so winter will be with us for another 6 weeks!  I must say this winter has been a colder one, but so far we have been spared from a really shut down Nor'easter storm here in SE Pennsylvania.


Groundhog Day always reminds me of 2 things: the time we visited Punxsutawney PA and the movie "Groundhog Day".


Our visit to Punxsutawney PA a few years back, happened in the spring so we did not have to deal with snow. We were visiting a relative not too far away so we thought we'd check out the town where Punxsutawney Phil resides.  We discovered Phil lives near the library and the downtown park. 

We were surprised to find out from locals that the spot where Phil sees his shadow is on the outskirts of town at Goblers Knobb of which we did visit. 

We were also surprised to find out that the movie "Groundhog Day" was not filmed at all in Punxsutawney PA!  Too bad for the town folk.  

Anyway, I never tire of seeing the movie, guess I'm sort of caught in a loop!!

Happy Groundhog Day!
