Groundhog Day each year falls on February 2 in the United States, coinciding with Candlemas. It is a part of popular culture among many Americans and it centers on the idea of the groundhog coming out of its home to “predict” the weather.
Groundhog Day is a popular observance in many parts of the United States. Although some states have in some cases adopted their own groundhogs, the official groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, lives at Gobbler’s Knob near Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. The town has attracted thousands of visitors over the years to experience various Groundhog Day events and activities (From TimeandDate.com).
Today in the Northern Hemisphere it is the Autumnal Equinox also known as Fall. This is my favorite season because the weather is getting cooler and it just feels cozy. I hope everyone has a great beginning to this new season and that we will all find comfort in crazy times.
I want to offer appreciation to local news journalists who are keeping us informed about what is going on in our backyards during these days of Coronavirus and now tornadoes and severe weather. Everywhere there is local information that needs to be reported. The news in your area matters and can impact your life in a profound way. These reporters really do deserve our thanks.
Easter Sunday was a rough day for many in the southern USA. Severe weather including tornadoes and thunderstorms impacted millions including my hometown of Chattanooga and surrounding area. Tornadoes hit in a residential area near our largest shopping mall. Not only do we have to deal with Coronavirus now people are having to deal with the devastating aftermath of these storms. Me and mine are OK but some friends are not. It’s going to be a tough few days for them.
