Move over Phil, groundfrog day is coming
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - January 26, 2010 -- You know all about Groundhog Day -- but how about GroundFrog Day?
GroundFrog Day is this coming Saturday, three days before the groundhog goes to work.
Organizers in Snohomish, Wash. tell a local newspaper that their bullfrog will be predicting the weather on GroundFrog Day.
Snohomish Slew will leave his 75-gallon tank at the Just Frogs Amphibian Center tank and supposedly look for his shadow.
Veterinary technician Thayer Cueter isn't impressed with the more famous prognosticating rodent in Pennsylvania.
She wonders if that groundhog has a secret frog in his pocket.
