Happy Groundhog Day!

This year Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of cold, winter weather. ❄️ Fortunately, he’s only correct about 40% of the time.

Some fun facts about Punxsutawney Phil…

Groundhogs are the largest species in the squirrel family.

Even though The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club founded Groundhog Day in 1886, (the first Groundhog Day celebration in Gobblers Knob was in 1887), Phil did not get his name until 1961.

Phil once met President Reagan in 1986 and was a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 1995.

According to records dating back to 1887, Phil has predicted winter more than 100 times.
