A time when Groundhog Day (February 2) focused on a groundhog in a small Pennsylvania town.
It was then, and it is now.
Like bagels have gone beyond New York and hockey is played in the Sun Belt, and have Groundhog Day celebrations have long extended beyond Punxsutawney.
First it was Sun Prairie, Wis., who burst onto the scene in the 1950s, arguing that it was “Groundhog Capital”, the proclamation of Congress to save it.
Now, almost 60 years later many of an American community has a groundhog prognosticator of its own. New Jersey is no exception.
For example, it is Essex Ed Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange.
Ed has made a name for himself for over 20 years after being rescued.
According to those statistics that support his predictions were accurate for something like seven of the last eight years. This record has earned him much publicity, even a trip across the Hudson on TV “Good Day New York.”
In the past there were parades and balloons in the city. In accordance with the time, the tone is slightly more modest today. There are contests, crafts and conferences for the family. Lots of fun “said Dr. Jeremy Goodman, director of the Turtle Back Zoo.
On the road to Milltown there is a story just as attractive. There, last year for the second consecutive year, more than 100 gathered to hear the verdict Groundhog Day of a rodent called Milltown Mel.
Locals own Mel and Jerry Guthlein Cathy Cathy purchased after it suffered a long illness.
According to local legend, it all started online. Jerry someone located in Pennsylvania, which brought the couple to a newborn who eventually became the now famous Milltown Mel.
Unlike Ed, who lives at the zoo, Mel is in a cage in the back called “Groundhog Palace.” It is equipped with an igloo type house generally considered to dogs and hay. It will also eat carrots left by neighborhood children and leaves.
Mel public appearance mimics the festivities in Punxsutawney. Jerry brings together a group of about 10 men, called the “Groundhog Dubblers,” a local variant of the Punxsutawney “Inner Circle”. This group is helping organize the event Groundhog Day each year and take care of Phil.
Although none of the Wranglers claim to know “Groundhogese”, an invitation sent by the points Guthleins that “gentlemen are encouraged to wear top hats”, as the Inner Circle is known to do.
What started out as friends and family, including grandchildren Guthlein, was opened to the community. The Guthleins even serve breakfast. Despite the cold of winter and the early hour, crowds turned up.
The celebration usually begins at 7 pm with Mel made an appearance around 7:25 or day, in the courtyard of Guthlein least 152 N. Main St.
Whether Mel, Ed, or the original Punxsutawney Phil, they are all guided by the principle that if the groundhog sees his shadow, there will be six weeks of winter. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring (According groundhog.org, the official site of Punxsutawney Groundhog Club).
