Groundhog Day in Dupont Circle on Sunday

If you are crazy enough to get up this early on a Sunday… From Dupont Festival:

“SUN, FEB 2, 2014 – GROUNDHOG DAY: Potomac Phil, the National Groundhog, will make an appearance and offer weather and political predictions. Phil will let us know whether to expect six more weeks of winter or an early spring. Live accordion music, polka dancers, puppet show, VIP celebrities and more. Dupont Circle, at the fountain. The event will begin at 7:30AM, Potomac Phil will emerge at approximately 8AM.”

    Hmmm. Since I don’t care at all about football on Sunday, I’m looking for an alternative plan. Hadn’t thought of being in Dupont Circle at 7:30 a.m., but it might be kinda fun in an ironic way. This is from the guy who never understood why the media was so insistent on going to a live shot of the groundhog on groundhog day. Such a crazy tradition. Anyone else thinking of going??

    It looks like there’s going to be some kind of thick, blue ooze coming out of the fountain. I’m looking forward to that part the most.
