To my knowledge there are no Groundhogs in my area. However, I have moles that dig up my yard!! Armadillo root around in the yard, too, but aren’t a nuisance.
Punxsutawney Phil gets all the hype but other prognosticators out there, too. I’m not going to put away the sheets that cover my plants when a freeze is predicted. AND, if our local meteorologist’ are correct, I may be covering as early as tomorrow afternoon!!
