Groundhogs day was such a big deal growing up on the east coast but living here in San Diego it is really not a big deal, we have great weather all year round. AS I was trying to explain to my class about groundhogs day they do not get it. "An animal is going to say when winter is over?. . . . my calendar tells me when it is spring!"
To all my east coast friends sorry you are going to have a longer winter.
