The Minnesota equivalent of Groundhog Day....

...is when the first raccoon shows up in your yard after its winter nap.  

Not interested in seeing its shadow, the raccoon is all about eating the suet from your birdfeeders, rummaging for dog food in your garage or tearing off the top of a garbage can.


One other difference from the real Groundhog Day is, in Minnesota, there is never an issue about whether there will be another six weeks of winter.
