In February of 2001, I went to Punxsutawney (I was living in Pennsylvania at the time) and actually attended the groundhog ceremony. The thing started at like midnight and went until 7 in the morning when they actually pull the groundhog out on the stage. They have bonfires going and refreshment stands. It was pretty fun but what I mostly remember is that I wore converse all-stars and it was snowing and by the time we left to go home my feet were so cold that it took like three hours to be able to move my toes again.
Punxsutawney, Pa. is known as the home of the groundhog, the renowned weather prophet.
