SHORT STORY groundhog's day

Fairmont Citron students learned about Groundhog's Day and made their own groundhogs! 
Did the groundhog see his shadow?? Yes! According to the Washington Post, "At 7:25 a.m. this morning, amidst mostly cloudy skies, and temperatures in the low 30s, Groundhog Phil saw his shadow in the little town of Punxsutawney, Pa. According to folklore, Phil’s sighting of his own shadow means there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Had Phil not seen his shadow, it would have meant 'there will be an early spring.'" 

Considering we've seen temperatures in the 70's and 80's this "winter" here in Orange County...our students aren't too concerned about those extra weeks.
