It's Groundhog Day!

via Groundhog Day!!

Everyone thinks Punxsutawney Phil is the real groundhog, but I have to say that Jimmy the Groundhog is the one true weather prognosticator. (Chalk it up to hometown bias. Besides, Sun Prairie is the Groundhog Capital of the World.)

We like to celebrate with a breakfast, where the mayor talks to Jimmy to find out whether or not we'll have six more weeks of winter. (If Jimmy sees his shadow - six more weeks of winter. If he doesn't - early spring!)

Jimmy has an 80% success rate, and he did not see his shadow this year. We'll be having an early spring!

Stay warm out there! And have a great Groundhog Day!!
