Weather Philosophy:  The application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere is about as believable as the Government telling you they are here to help you.  When you hear Punxsutawney Phil's Prognostication on February 2nd be a believer!  He has the ability and the attributes to take a complex meteorolgical phenomena to the general public in a way that is undetstandable, entertaining and descriptive.

If I wasn't working on Groundhog Day, I'd be doing:  what I like to do every Groundhog Day.  I would be on Gobblers Knob, walking around town, talking to and enjoying visitors to our community.

On February 3, I'll be:  busy trying to make a living.

On Groundhog Day you can expect to find me:  at the information center at Gobblers Knob.  Stop in and say hello!

If you want to get the inside scoop on the Inner Circle,: you need to get a life.


What's the best way to get to the Knob?  Turn towards Wal Mart off Rt. 119 south, go straight for about 2 miles and the Knob is on your right.  I will be in the little Dark Red house under the treees watining to help make your Groundhog Day experience enjoyable.

To Really enjoy Groundhog Day , you have to:  Attend the Groundhog Banquet, usually the night before Groudnhog Day.  Socialize at a few of the establishments downtown after the banquet.  Try to get some sleep.  Get up early, find a place to park downtown, get on a School Bus to the Knob by 5:00 AM- earlier if you want to take in all the entertainment.  After Phil does his prediction find a place to eat breakfast, enjoy tha activities downtown and then start for home.  If that doesn't put a smile on your face you just don't have the Groundhog Gene.

Groundhog day!  It is adult Christmas cone to enjoy and believe in the magic of Punxsutawney Phil.  We will be waiting for you.....
