Franklin, TN (Vocus) February 1, 2009
Tomorrow Americans everywhere will celebrate Groundhog Day - looking to the hibernating animal for his yearly weather prediction. This superstitious holiday, which falls on February 2 every year, has roots in German folklore.
If the groundhog, also known as a woodchuck, marmot or whistle pig, sees his shadow then it will mean more winter weather for six more weeks; if he doesn't springtime will begin early. While much of the U.S. continues to experience cruel weather this winter, many are rooting for an early spring prediction but after the latest storm Magazines.com predicts the groundhog will forecast six more weeks of winter.
