If groundhogs are smart, they won’t even leave their homes this Groundhog Day.
Monday morning, when groundhogs are supposed to tell us if we should expect six more weeks of winter, the storm will already have hit the Midwest and be moving toward the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. (Video via The Weather Channel)
Eight and or more inches are expected in Chicago, Detroit, New York City and Boston.
Although some states have their own spring-predicting groundhogs, the official national groundhog is Punxsutawney Phil. Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, is expecting overcast skies and up to 3 inches of snow. (Video via YouTube / Punxsutawney Phil)
If the storm doesn’t allow Phil to see his shadow, tradition says that means an early spring, something kind of hard to believe when you look at the weather in most of the country. (Video via CNN and CBN)
