Groundhog Day at Gobbler’s Knob 2012

This was one to check off the bucket list. Because Groundhog Day fell on a weekend I thought it would be cool to experience it in person. So I ventured out to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to make sure I arrived in time to beat the crowds. What I did not know was that the locals are out partying in Gobbler’s Knob all night long. By the time I arrived around 4am the Knob was already filled with people. Luckily my colleagues at the Weather Channel were there.
