Groundhog Day

February 2, 2021 (97 days away)

Can a sleepy rodent predict the upcoming year's weather? Well, they try their best when hogs across the country make their prediction at daybreak on February 2nd. The most famous predictor may be Punxsutawney Phil, but New York has its own star on Staten Island, where Charles G. Hogg, also known as Staten Island Chuck, has made a prediction at the Staten Island Zoo every year since 1981.
