Ground Hog’s Day in Punxsutawney

What’s the point of Ground Hog’s Day? 

I’m talking about the day, not the movie, which is kind of funny.  Doesn’t Punxsutawney Phil always see his shadow because of TV lights?  Punxsutawney Phil is a fraud too, because according to Google Maps, Gobbler’s Nob is actually just outside the boundaries of the borough of Punxsutawney.  Also, the same map shows Punxsutawney is not far from Alaska, so it should be cold there at this time of year.  I mean Alaska, Pennsylvania, of course. 

I’ve been to western Pennsylvania, more than once.  I was tired of Winter before it started.  I’d like Spring to start soon too, but to the best of my knowledge, Spring has never showed up  in Punxsutawney, PA, in early February.

So, what’s the point of Ground Hog’s Day?
