"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Skumps, Groundhog!

Just a couple of days left to prepare for the big day. Groundhog’s Day!  You know he’s going to see his shadow and predict 6 more weeks of winter.

Preparations are in full swing in Punxsutawney PA.  There are other groundhogs who try to share the limelight but Punxsutawney Phil is the REAL groundhog prognosticator of the weather.  Just about 85 miles Northeast from downtown Pittsburgh.

When Steve and I were at Grant Bar in Millvale,  this was the special on the chalkboard.  This is a local brew made in St. Mary’s PA at STRAUB.  You can take a virtual tour of their brewery here

The bartender brought one out and allowed me to photograph the label.  No groundhogs were harmed to make this brew.

  2. We might as well put our faith in Phil and raise a glass of this brew. Not one human weather prognosticator predicted anything like the WInter we’re having here. Why not let the furry little guy have a chance?
