Will He See His Shadow?

In Reference to Number 7 about those from PA -- here's a chance for you guys to get an education...there's pictures, trivia, information and lesson plans for teachers, you can even join the club! --- all that is written below, and the picture above, was taken from this site.

Phil Says "Six More Weeks of Winter!"

Phil's official forecast as read February 2nd, 2009 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob:

Hear Ye Hear Ye

On Gobbler's Knob this glorious Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2009

Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators

Awoke to the call of President Bill Cooper

And greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths

After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers,

Phil proclaimed that his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers were World Champions one more time

And a bright sky above me

Showed my shadow beside me.

So 6 more weeks of winter it will be.

(to the tune of "Winter Wonderland")

Groundhogs hoot, are your listening?
'Neath the sun, all is glist'ning
A real warm light we're happy tonight
Waitin' in a Groundhog wonderland.

In the field, we're watching for the Groundhog.
We've been waiting for this day all year.
Do you think that he will see his shadow?
And will we know if springtime's almost here?

Later on, while we're eating
What we got on Groundhog Day
We'll share all our sacks
Of good Groundhog snacks
Waitin' in a Groundhog wonderland.

That's really cute:) I'm not from PA but my Mom, Grandparents, and most of my Uncle's and Aunts from her side are. My Grandparent's grew up in Vintondale (a small coal mining town), went to college at Transylvania Bible College, and pastored a couple churches there. One of them was in Kittaning. Don't know if you know whereabouts those are but thought you might think it was interesting:)
