Inner Circle

Weather Philosophy: 6 more weeks of winter means 6 more weeks of Pittsburgh Penguins hockey with Crosby, Malkin & company. Go Pens.

If I wasn't working on Groundhog Day activities, I'd probably be: taking the time off from work anyway to work security at the "knob" as I had done prior to joining the "Inner Circle."

Favorite Drink: Coca-Cola.

On February 3, I'll be busy: catching up on the sleep that I missed out on the previous two days.

On Groundhog Day you can expect to find me: at the "knob" or downtown visiting with the may people who have come to our great little town.

If you want to know the inside scoop on the Inner Circle: I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate me. Seriously if I divulged any information about the Inner Circle, you'd be getting a visit from my uncle "Guido!" Ha! Ha!

What's the best way to get to the Knob? Like Carnegie Hall, "Practice... practice!" Seriously folks, take the shuttle buses that are provided or enjoy the walk to the "knob."

To really experience Groundhog Day, you have to: Come to Punxsutawney and experience the "festivities" in person. There are towns across the country that would love to have a celebration like this to fill the void between the Christmas holiday and the first day of spring.

Favorite Groundhog Club Event other Than Groundhog Day: Groundhog Picnic

Favorite Groundhog Day Memory: The year that there was an estimated 30,000 people at the "Knob" for Groundhog Day.

6 More Weeks of Winter or Early Spring? 6 More Weeks of Winter!
