Only one more sleep until Groundhog Day! Will we have an early spring or six more weeks of bitter winter? Only Punxsutawney Phil (or Staten Island Chuck) knows for sure.

Regardless of what the groundhogs see (or don't see) we've come up with a list of things to help get your mind off of it.

What You Can Do Even If the Groundhog Sees Its Shadow:

  • Go sledding! Even if we don't have any snow on the ground, there are plenty of places up north to get outside and enjoy some fresh powder. Grab your friends and family and make a day out of it! I used to love to take my boys out sledding.
  • Get some hot steaming coffee. One of the best ways to deal with the cold is by drinking a hot cup of well, whatever you enjoy! Try something new! Winter is the time to go for it.
  • Put on some ice skates and get moving. Bring your the family ice skating at the Flyer’s Skate Zone in Atlantic City and enjoy some winter fun.
  • Take out your frustration about the prolonged winter and knock some pins over. Get out of the house and keep warm at a local bowling alley, like King Pin in Egg Harbor Township!

What You Can Do If the Groundhogs Don't See Their Shadow:

  • Take a walk on your closest boardwalk! With spring weather right around the corner, you'll want to take full advantage of being able to stroll the boards without bumping into people. Trust me, it'll be summer before you know it. Oh and the world famous Do Dah parade in Ocean City will be here before you know it!
  • Experience South Jersey wildlife. Be a monkey's uncle at The Cape May Zoo. Hey, you can even kick back and enjoy a train ride around one of the best zoo's in America!
  • Prep and start your garden. Get your gardening tools and seeds ready for spring!
  • Get started on your spring cleaning. That way once the warmer weather finally arrives you won't be stuck inside.

Whether our furry friends actually see their shadows on Thursday or not, one thing is for sure, we’re still one step closer to spring!
