Happy Groundhog Day!  To be honest I never really understood the meaning of this tradition or how it managed to spread across the entire US.  I remember teachers actually taking time out of class to tell us if that rodent saw its shadow or not.  I could not for the life of me understand how a whistle pig could inflict a longer winter on the planet.  But, I guess that is the case with most traditions/superstitions that people subscribe to.  Where I grew up had long winters anyhow, so it really did not matter.
