I actually traveled to see this big tradition carried out a few years ago with a van load of girlfriends, and we made a weekend of it in the cute little town of Punxsutawney, PA. The tradition happens no matter how cold or how bad the weather is, and people come from all over the USA, and probably places far,far away to get a glimpse of Phil doing his annual duty. The town of Punxsutawney has the whole process down to a science and they bus all of the observers up to Gobbler's Knob, where everyone proceeds to stand around and stay warm with hot chocolate and lots of heavy outerwear and boots that withstand sub zero temps!
Anyhow, I watched it on the national news this morning. And it is much easier to see on TV than on Gobbler's Knob. They have the mayor and borough council people all dressed in top hats and fine suits. One of these men pulls Phil out of his cage, and then they exchange some Groundhog talk.....and low and behold, Groundhog Phil makes a decision. It is then proclaimed by another dude, in a tall top hat what Phil decided. There is no burrow, no shadows, no running away of Phil, and certainly no sun. It is done right at sunrise.....so there is no way Phil will ever see his shadow. And from my many years of living in this area, we rarely have an early Spring. And almost always have 6 more weeks of winter. And that is what Phil predicted today!
So, you are probably wondering what is my skin lesson this week? I will remind you to protect your skin in cold, windy weather since going up on Gobbler's Knob or any winter sports can be tough on your exposed areas of the face, lips, and hands.
I will refer you to my essential products blogs rodan-fields-essentials-are-essential.html and nothing-ages-you-like-bony-veiny-crepy-age-spotted-hands.html because if you are out in winter and cold weather these products should be in your arsenal to battle the effects.
