Ok..Whether you believe in the whole Groundhog thing or not, it makes for lots of  TV coverage Feb 2nd.Wildlife Prairie State Park in Illinois, is looking to give the little rodent some competition.  They’re bringing in the big guns, former NBC weatherman and former Ronald McDonald, Willard Scott, for a Groundhog Day celebration.

While Phil does his thing in Punxsutawney, PA, Gerte the groundhog will be doing her thing at Wildlife Prairie..with Willard.  I guess you could say Willard is enjoying a full-circle career.  By the way, the groundhogs have been right in predicting an early spring, 80% of the time.
