February 2, 2007 was a mild Saturday, and attendance was up for the Groundhog Day festivities in Myerstown.  As the creek was high from the recent rainfall, difficulty in launching Uni led to him taking a dip in the river!  Did he see his shadow?  There were conflicting reports, so I asked for the forecast in PA German and captured this video.

Since I have become a snowbird, here is the 2009 prediction just in case you have not heard.

For comparison, below are the photos for the 2007 event.

Here's Uni on his annual boat ride.  He saw his shadow in the water.

It was official:  Six more weeks of winter!
