Groundhog Day

I've never understood Groundhog Day.

Of course we celebrated it when I was in elementary school, but the end of winter is not meaningful when you live in Southern California. Click here to see the monthly temperature variation in Los Angeles.

Later, I moved to Madison, Wisconsin, and I could never figure out if six more weeks of winter was good news or bad. If the little rodent didn't see his shadow, could winter last even longer?
