First off, today is Groundhog Day!! As I was born and raised in Punxsy, I must bow to wondrous Phil, and tell you all there will be six more weeks of winter weather.
I loved growing up in Punxsy, it is very small town. We use to go up on Gobblers Knob a lot back then, there was a few hundred people that would make the trek every year. We even had the day off of school if we wanted to go. Now, there are always like thousands of people from all over the world!! It has grown huge. Back in the old days lol, we use to drink at the bars and then go up and just keep drinking, there would be kegs of beer and a lot of young people having fun. Now you can not drink up there at all. I am really glad that so many people visit Gobblers Knob, but it is just to crowded for me now. If you ever get a chance to go to Punxsy on February 2nd, go, you will enjoy it. Also if you are there anytime, take a look around at all the things that are related to Phil. I will get my husband to take my picture with my Punxsutawney Phil shirt and post it later tonight or tomorrow.
