This week we say goodbye to January and hello to February. We're just a little bit closer to warmer weather, but only if the groundhog comes out of his hole and sees his shadow this Thursday, February 2nd. Which brings me to our fun fact of the week and it's yes, about Groundhog Day. The first Groundhog Day was celebrated in 1887 at Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and that the official groundhog's name is Punxsutawney Phil. Do you think Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow this year?
Here's an overview of what happened last week, just in case you missed it.
