Groundhog Day

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Fred Pickard Innovations Realty Inc

Since I'm not too far away from "Groundhog Central" I thought some might be interested in the premier groundhog day celebration held in Punxsutwaney, Pa.

There is actually a Groundhog.org website with the history, pomp and circumstance??? on the most famous groundhog in the world, Punxsutawney Phil.

And this has become 21st Century event with a website and they even give the GPS coordinates on the website:

N40.93027 W78.95772 (hddd.ddddd°)
N40 55.816 W78 57.463 (hddd°mm.mmm')

and an online video of Phil from 2006.

And if you plan to go, leave early. The gates open at 3AM and Phil emerges to make his prediction about 7:25AM.
