Color the most famous furry weather forecaster.
Did you know????
Groundhog Day occurs every February 2nd.
According to legend: “It is the day that the Groundhog comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow.”
- If the day is sunny: and he sees his shadow, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather (Long Winter) and returns to his hole.
- If the day is cloudy; and he therefore cannot see his own shadow, he takes it as an omen of Spring arriving soon (Short Winter) and stays above ground.
Athletes from all over the world will take part in the Olympic games beginning Feb. 7 thru Feb. 23 2014. The host city for the Winter Games is Sochi, Russia.
