Pennsylvania’s First Lady brought a special visitor with her to a class in Harrisburg.  Susan Corbett first read a book about groundhogs to a group of second grade students at Ben Franklin school.  She then introduced the guest of honor, Punxsutawney Phil.  Each year, thousands flock to the small town of Punxsutawney to watch Phil make his prediction for six more weeks of winter if he sees his shadow or an early spring if he doesn’t.  Groundhog Day is February 2nd.
