In 300 BC, the Chinese had a calendar broken into 24 festivals, each with its own unique weather patterns. They are Spring begins, The rains, Insects awaken,Vernal Equinox, Clear and bright, Grain rain, Summer begins, Grain buds, Grain in ear, Summer solstice, Slight heat, Great heat, Autumn begins, Stopping the heat, White dews, Autumn Equinox, Cold dews, Hoar-frost falls, Winter begins, Light snow, Heavy snow, Winter Solstice, Slight cold, Great cold.
Today we use satellites and other costly equipment to gauge our environment, examining changes in the atmosphere and running sophisticated computer models. And sometimes, we just stare at a groundhog.
On February second we all have one burning question. Will we have six more weeks of winter or not? Since 1887 America has followed the predication of Punxsutawney Phil. If he seems his shadow, that means there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t, we can assume that the warm weather is looming.
The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club plays an important role in organizing Groundhog Day in the town. Many weather researchers questioned the groundhog’s accuracy in predicting the weather. But some of the groundhog’s fans may not agree. Whether you believer it or not, we admit he is adorable and gentle creature.
If you have some groundhogs in your yard, you cannot always stare at the Groundhog all day to know the weather predication. If you don’t want to miss it, you can watch it from videos from your Titathink security cameras.
Some of our customers use their Titathink security cameras to watch the groundhog activities and said:”I’ve had a groundhog in my yard for over 10 years..Maybe he’s the second or third generation. They are adorable creatures and have never caused me any problem. He is not always right, but he’s always popular”.
We hope you have a good time and lots of fun when you stare at a groundhog to forecast the weather.
