Jimmy Says....

Happy Groundhogs Day, the day when furry weather prognosticators venture forth from their dens and tell us whether we will see an early spring...or six more weeks of winter.

In Sun Prairie, Wisconsin -- the official Groundhog Capital of the World -- Jimmy the Groundhog exited his burrow early this morning and, the day being a bit gray, decreed that there would be an early spring. Lest some of you be tempted to believe Phoney Phil in Pennsylvania, let it be known that Jimmy the Groundhog has a greater record of accuracy than he (and Phil is saying six more weeks of winter).

If you'd like to learn more about Groundhog's Day, visit Groundhog Central where you'll find history, groundhog facts, photographs and more.
