Groundhog Day

Yesterday was Groundhog Day in the United States and Canada. According to folklore (and Wikipedia...), if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, it will leave the burrow, signifying the end of winter. If it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into it burrow and the winter weather will continue for six more week.

Or as my friend Erin put it, "a large squirrel predicts the weather"...
