February 2 – now with more hog

If it wasn’t for all the snow that we got yesterday, February 2 might have just been another day in the calendar.

But now, it becomes important to look forward to the arrival of spring.  And, what a better way to do it than to turn to everyone’s favourite meteorologist, Wiarton Willie.  Or Shubenacadie Sam or Fenwick Flossie or Punxsutawney Phil or whoever handles weather things on this day in your part of the world.

For a while now, I’ve tucked away related stories and classroom activities in a Flipboard collection.  You’re more than welcome to poke around.

It’s fun for the kids and big business for the local communities which hold festivals of celebrations.

Of course, you can follow your favourite groundhog on social media.
