Buddy Beaverhausen's Random Thoughts: Groundhog Day 2016

Today is Groundhog Day. It's an American ritual dating back to the 19th century.

A top-hat wearing "Inner Circle" announce Punxsutawney Phil's prediction at sunrise.

And ~ hoorah! ~ Phil, the groundhog, didn't see his shadow, predicting an early Spring. I think he might be right!

We had a blizzard here in NYC but it's basically been a mild winter with temperatures back on the rise in February.

Bill Murray had a very successful film comedy about Groundhog Day, entitled just that. Recommended viewing for the day. And, no, everyone, work places do not give workers a day off today in the United States.

ps: This is only the 18th time in history Phil has predicted an early spring. Love you, Punxy!
