“There’s the groundhog!” shouted the crowd. “Does he see his shadow? Oh, I hope not!”

“I didn’t see a shadow,” said the mayor of the town. “But, I don’t know why that silly groundhog went back into his den.”

Meanwhile, Silly Groundhog remembered where his socks were. He put them on and went back outside.

“Oh,” said the mayor. “Silly Groundhog is back. There is no shadow. It is going to be an early spring!”
