Preparing for Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day hasn't gained the attention it deserves by the greeting card makers (exception of electronic). But, like Christmas, there's a bit of anticipation leading to the big day. A country wonders if Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow and share hypotheticals whether he does or doesn't.

The Shell Factory and Nature Park in Ft. Myers, Fla. have run into a snafu in preparing for the big day. According to www.news-press.com, they ordered a groundhog to live in their new groundhog habitat and more importantly, determine whether there will be six more months of winter. Instead, they received prairie dogs.

OK, you'd have to be pretty ignorant not to know the difference between a groundhog (aka: woodchuck) and a prairie dog. And, how difficult is it to locate a groundhog? Read the complete story to see how they plan to resolve the situation.
