Punxsutawney Phil ain’t this vicious

Everyone knows it means six more weeks of winter when a groundhog sees his shadow.   My biggest question with this whole thing.  Since there is so many groundhog parties and they all have their own little waking up from hibernation party which one do we trust?   

What does the future hold if he bites the mayor’s hand?

According to German superstition, if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on Feb. 2 — the Christian holiday of Candlemas — winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow was seen, legend said spring would come early.

Staten Island’s famous groundhog, Charles G. Hogg, inexplicably bit Mayor Michael Bloomberg during his annual holiday ceremony on Monday, drawing blood from the billionaire.

Said Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser: “It nicked his hand.”

He was told there was no risk of rabies. The 2-year-old animal was born and raised in captivity and has had no interaction with other animals.
