February 2 Ground Hog Day

So once again the ground hog in Pennsylvania "saw his shadow" so 6 more weeks of winter are predicted.  But did he really see his shadow, or did the people around him see it and assumed he saw it? (Sort of like if a tree falls in the forest and there's no one around, does it make a noise?)  So I ask, was he even looking?

Always seeking new information however, I discovered:
NOAA says Groundhog Day originated as an ancient celebration of the mid-point between the winter solstice and spring equinox.

  • What do you get when you cross a groundhog with a pistachio? 
    A green beast who predicts a dry spring, and acts like a nut.
