Groundhog Day Countup

Haps: Sunday February 2, 2020

Groundhog Day 2020 is, as usual, on February 2, when the famous groundhog in Punxsutawney Pennsylvania (traditionally known as Punxsutawney Phil) will come out of his burrow, where he (or she - Phillipa anyone?) was blissfully hibernating, take a yawn, and help us determine the remainder of Winter 2020. If the mighty groundhog sees his shadow, 6 more weeks of winter for us, a celebration for those of us that love Winter; If Phil does not see his shadow, according to tradition, we are in for an early Spring, much to the thrill of home gardening stores! 2020 marks the 134th anniversary of Groundhog Day.

And the results are in: On February 2, 2020 Punxsutawney did not see his shadow so we may be in for an early Spring, not hard to believe since the Winter of 2020 has pretty much been a no-show in the Northeast, with temperatures in late January and early February hovering in the 50s.

With all due respect to Groundhog Phil, HapsAhoy disagrees completely. We think that not only will there be 6 more weeks of winter, but a few snow storms are possible, and it will be a wet, colder than usual April!
