Groundhogs like to enjoy their meals on the spot and will take as long as two hours to feed. While their diet is mainly vegetarian, they also enjoy insects and snails. You might serve escargot sans sauce to thank the little guy. If the weather report is to your liking, that is. It will not turn its nose on the occasional egg either. Raw, please. For conversation, discuss its various names: Whistle-pig, land-beaver and woodchuck.

And The Gift Certificate Winners Are… On January 30th, on our Facebook page, we asked, Which of these outsells all the others when a major storm is on the way? THE ANSWER… POP TARTS!

Large-surface retailers were surprised by the shift in purchasing habits. Flashlights, candles and canned goods remain high on the list of necessities, but Pop-Tarts, more specifically Strawberry Pop-Tarts, outsell these by almost 7 to 1.

Your Answers: Pop Tarts (37%), Batteries (31%), Candles (21%), Canned Foods (11%). Three randomly selected winners received a $10 Gift Certificate.
