    Wouldn't they first need to actually come out of their hole before they could see any shadows at all?

    You have to have "light" before you can have "shadow" unless of course you are Peter Pan. But then he spends most of his free time CHASING his shadow.....

    I have to laugh when I hewar that we will have 6 more weeks of winter if 'Punxnatawney Phil" sees his shadow...

    Of course he is going to see his freakin' shadow... there are a couple of hundred TV cameras with lighting focused on him when he gets pulled out of his cubbyhole!

    I saw Bill Murray behind the local dignitaries and thought of the line from his movie:"In the old days,they used to drag the rodent out of its hole and EAT it!".I kept expecting him to jump out and start hollering that.

    "Groundhog Day" in the Navy refers to the point in a cruise after your name has appeared in the watchbill in every possible permutation that the watchbill coordinator can think of and until the end of the cruise,you are just repeating those days.

    Or when you are crossing back over The Line on the return trip from Asia.
