Groundhogs And Birthdays

February 2, 2007

Well, it’s that day again:

Phil did not see his shadow on Friday, which, according to German folklore, means folks can expect an early spring instead of six more weeks of winter.

Since 1886, Phil has seen his shadow 96 times, hasn’t seen it 15 times and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. The last time Phil failed to see his shadow was in 1999.

This day has always had special significance with me, as it is also my birthday (yay!).  For the record, I turned 33 today.


  1. Well, Happy Birthday, and I certainly hope you do something fun as well as special.

    I remember my 33rd birthday like it was Y2K. Wait a minute, it was Y2K!

  2. Thanks Felicia! I’ll be going out for dinner with the girlfriend, but that’s about it. I can’t get too crazy; I have to work in the morning 😦
