Sie schläft wie ein Murmeltier...

A friend from Germany wrote to me that her grand-daughter "schläft wie ein Murmeltier." Literal translation: sleeps like a groundhog. We'd say she sleeps like a log.  Not sure which one is stranger -- probably ours!  Anyway, I painted her a postcard of a baby groundhog and explained our Groundhog Day tradition.  On Groundog Day, February 2nd, Buckeye Chuck, in Ohio, predicted six more weeks of winter. Punxsutawney Phil, in Pennsylvania, predicted an early spring.  I wish Phil were right, but my money is on Buckeye Chuck.
