Early Spring or 6 More Weeks of Winter?

Groundhog Day is this Friday, February 2nd!


Punxsutawney Phil, the one and only groundhog, comes out of his burrow in Gobbler's Knob, Pennsylvania, to predict the weather patterns to come. This tradition was established in 1887!

"According to legend, if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring." 

We don't know about you, but all of us at SLP Center, are hoping for spring!
