Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Today is Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil will emerge from his burrow and either declare an early spring or six more weeks of winter. With the crazy weather we’ve been having here in Detroit this winter, I’m pretty sure our local groundhogs will come out of their hole, throw their arms in the air (Yes, arms!) and say, “How the heck should I know!”

Our winter has been so mild so far this year that I’m convinced we’re going to have the Snowmageddon to end all Snowmageddons come late March or early April. And for those of you that are going to the Detroit Tiger’s opening day? Plan for a blizzard!

(Oh, and there's still time to win 4 day passes to Castaway Bay!)
