There is something about Groundhog Day that is humorous to me. Perhaps it's just the whole idea that we're all so ready for winter to be over with, that we cannot wait to find out if Punxsutawney Phil is going to predict an early spring. Or maybe I cannot help the fact that my mind seems to automatically re-play scenes from the movie, Groundhog Day...especially the part where Bill Murray steals Punxsutawney Phil.

There are many famous groundhogs across the U.S., some more famous than others. I chose 7 of my personal favorites for this Groundhog Day story map. They either won me over with their stories...or their overall cuteness. I hope you all enjoy and have a wonderful Groundhog Day this weekend!
