Groundhog Day

The Lake Superior Zoo’s lovable version of Punxsutawney Phil will make an appearance at 10 a.m. today as its prairie dogs and porcupine, Spike, emerge from their holes and predict the arrival of spring.

According to Groundhog Day lore, if the animals see their shadows, there’ll be six more weeks of winter. If the shadows go unnoticed, an early spring is on the horizon.
