Town: Plum Borough State/Province: PA Country:
A groundhog crossed the road as I was driving. It waddled slowly and appeared still sleepy. I saw a second one also while I was driving a couple more miles away and that one ran across road quickly. I've learned that near springtime, when they're in an arousal state during hibernation, they emerge above ground then return to the burrow for further deep sleep until late March/early April here in western pa.
