Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow today which means spring is right around the corner! I actually had the chance to go to Gobbler's Knob in 2002. It was a big deal that year because it was 02-02-02. One of my college roommates was from Punxsutawney Pa so a couple of us went up to see what the big deal was all about. Let me just tell you I was in for a big surprise. Growing up in Pa you hear about this big party but you have no idea what it really is like unless you are there. There are thousands of people from all over the world packed in the grassy area around a stage that is playing really loud music all night. If you want a good spot you have to get there early as we did to be close to the stage. My roommate's uncle knew the head guys there so we actually were called up onto the stage to dance which is a big deal. If you know me at all you know I can't dance so luckily for me almost half the crowd was drunk so I didn't make a total fool of myself! Today the girls and I will be doing a few Groundhog Day activities to celebrate the day. Here is a link to a craft that we will be making today. http://www.dltk-kids.com/animals/mgroundhog.html My hope is that Phil is right and spring is right around the corner but the way it looks outside I am not very hopeful.
