Groundhog Forecast: Spring Appreciation Is on Its Way
As you already may know, tomorrow is Groundhog Day – the wondrous occasion when we base our expectations for the arrival of spring on whether a furry little marmot will exit his hibernation den and go for a much-needed walk, or get spooked by his own shadow and retreat back to safety. Ok, even we can admit this sounds pretty silly, but animal behavior has actually played a key role in weather predictions since as far back as ancient times. In fact, it was the first German settlers of Pensylvania in the 1700s who decided the groundhog would be the local herald of the coming of spring. Otherwise, we might be celebrating bear or hedgehog day instead.
Whether you think the science behind Groundhog Day is based on logic or lunacy, one thing is certain. Spring is in fact on its way. February 2nd is the cross-quarter day that marks the halfway point between winter and spring and, regardless of anticipated temperature changes, the seasonal change is coming fast.
