Groundhog Day Quotes

groundhog1aWhat exactly is a groundhog?

The Marmota monax, also known as a woodchuck or whistlepig, is a rodent. Yep, Punxsatawney Phil is a rodent who happens to get very popular every February 2nd for seeing or not seeing his shadow. The legend goes like this: “If it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early. If it is sunny, the the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks.” *

“The groundhog is like most other prophets; it delivers its predication and then disappears.” – Bill Vaughn

“To shorten winter, borrow some money due in spring.” – W. J. Vogel

“Every mile is two in winter.” – George Herbert

(This quote reminds me of my dad in Florida whenever he called hubby and I in New Hampshire)

“Don’t knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation if it didn’t change once in a while.” – Kin Hubbard**
